Emily Steiner received her BA from Brown University and her PhD from Yale. She is the author of Documentary Culture and the Making of Medieval English Literature (Cambridge University Press, 2003) and has co-edited a collection of essays called The Letter of the Law: Legal Practice and Literary Production in Medieval England (Cornell University Press, 2002). Her forthcoming book, Reading 'Piers Plowman'  will be published by Cambridge University Press in 2013. She has published essays in The Yearbook of Langland Studies, New Medieval Literatures, Studies in the Age of Chaucer, and Representations, among other journals. She is presently working on a new book on medieval macrogenres (encyclopedias, universal histories, etc.), starring the fourteenth-century prose translator, John Trevisa. Her research interests extend to Lollard literature, medieval drama and ritual performance, and Jewish-Christian relations in the Middle Ages. Her teaching interests also include Old English literature, Chaucer, and poetry of all periods.
