Elizabeth Walsh

Kathleen Lynch is Executive Director of the Folger Institute, a position she has held since 1996. As such, she is responsible for organizing the seminars, workshops, and other formal programs for scholars at the Folger Shakespeare Library. Her research interests include the intertwined histories of regulations of religion and the book trade. Among her published articles are “Into Jail and into Print: John Bunyan Writes the Godly Self” in the Huntington Library Quarterly’s special issue on Prison Writing, edited by William H. Sherman and William J. Sheils (2009); “Staging New Worlds: Place and Le Theatre de Neptune” in the Journal of Medieval and Early Modern Studies (2008); and “Devotion Bound: A Social History of The Temple,” in Books and Readers in Early Modern England, Ed. Jennifer Andersen and Elizabeth Sauer (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2001). Her book, Protestant Autobiography in the Seventeenth-Century Anglophone World, was recently published with Oxford University Press (spring 2012).


Elizabeth (Betsy) Walsh joined the Folger Library staff in 1974 and was appointed Head of Reader Services in 1986. She has been a contributor to Shakespeare Magazine and was co-editor with Thomas Gravell of American Watermarks, 1690-1835 (Oak Knoll Press, 2002). She has served as a curator and consultant for a number of Folger exhibitions including The Reader Revealed (2001), Voices for Tolerance (2004) and Breaking News (2008).
