***Dr. Jayne Lewis is a Professor of English in the School of Humanities at the University of California, Irvine. Her most recent book examines the emergence of “atmosphere” as a dimension of literary experience which links the history of early fiction with natural philosophy and the supernatural. She is currently completing Enlightened Christianities, which she describes as “an anthology of Christian writing in English, 1660-1750, which explores everything from physico-theology to freethinking, from Anglican poetics to the dynamics of dissent, from popular depictions female spirituality and spiritual self-help to the rise of Methodism”. Her other research interests focus on literature of the supernatual, gothic fiction, and narratives of illness and healing.
