Georgianna Ziegler

Georgianna Ziegler is Louis B. Thalheimer Head of Reference at the Folger Shakespeare Library.

 

After receiving a doctorate at the University of Pennsylvania in early modern English and French literature, Georgianna taught at Davidson College and Wofford College in the Carolinas. She then returned to the University of Pennsylvania where she served as Curator of the Horace Howard Furness Shakespeare Library in the Rare Book Department, while also teaching classes in English literature and pursuing a library degree at Drexel University.

 

In 1992, Georgianna came to the Folger where, in addition to her reference and teaching work, she has curated several exhibitions, notably Shakespeare’s Unruly Women, and Elizabeth I: Then and Now, as well as co-curating exhibitions on mapping, on Shakespeare in children’s literature, and on the Boydell Shakespeare Gallery.

She has recently finished a book manuscript, Domesticating the Bard: Women and Shakespeare 1790-1890
