Janine Rivière - Dreams in Early Modern England (Routledge, 2017)

Join us for light refreshments and meet the author.

Dreams in Early Modern England provides an in-depth exploration of the variety of ways in which early modern people understood and interpreted dreams, from medical explanations to political, religious or supernatural associations. The chapters explore the dream in relation to divination, religious visions, sleep, nightmares and sleep disorders.

Dr. Janine Rivière received her PhD in History from the University of Toronto. She currently teaches in the International Foundation Program at New College and has published widely on the cultural history of dreams and nightmares in early modern England.
