Isabel Harvey Aracne editrice

Isabel Harvey is a PhD candidate at McGill University under the supervision of Prof. Paula Clarke. Her thesis examines the discursive processes and the mechanisms of transmission, translation and representation used in the dissemination of literature, spiritual and mystic, on the body of nuns. A by-product of the Council of Trent, the early modern period saw a flourishing of texts seeking to explain, describe and rule the consecrated female body, a literature which is addressed to or comes from women who should not have body. What do these texts tell us about the reality of life in early modern convents, on the one hand, and about the dissemination and transformation of discourses through both ecclesiastical and secular networks, or inside a religious house, on the other? Ms Harvey’s research covers the French, Spanish and Italian Benedictines, Carmelites, Ursulines, and Visitandines. She holds a BA from the Université de Montréal, which includes studies at the Università di Bologna in Italy. She also holds an MA from the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris.
