    How sad. I was first introduced to her work when I was a M.A. student, working as a grading assistant in a course on early modern women’s history. What a revelation!

    I assign one of her articles every year in my senior seminars (this winter term it was “Charles Stuart: That Man of Blood”) and students comment on the clarity of her language and arguments. I am, at least, heartened to know that we’ll have one more of her books to appear.

    My first close encounter was the Attitudes to Menstruation article, during an MA course module on gender and the body. In that particular context, I think it was a bit harder to appreciate how remarkable and ground-breaking it was (it was just normal to read stuff about blood and bodily gunk and sex and orifices in that course – one of the best I took anywhere, ever, and largely to blame for much of what I’ve done since), but even so it was an eye-opener. I should grab it off Jstor and read it again.
