About Leah Redmond Chang

Leah Redmond Chang is an author and historian. She is a former Associate Professor of French and Director of the French Literature Program at George Washington University and was most recently a Senior Research Associate at University College London. 

If you had any doubts about female authorship she would be the best person to speak to. She researched and wrote extensively about the role of queens during the Renaissance era, specifically Catherine de Medici, Elizabeth Tudor, Mary Stuart, and Elisabeth de Valois. One of her works, Portraits of the Queen Mother: Polemics, Panegyrics, Letters, was also the winner of the Josephine Roberts Award from the International Society for the Study of Early Modern Women. She spends her time between Washington DC and London, so you will probably catch her typing some new exciting piece in one of those flights.
