The book covers the figure of the woman reader in Europe during the early modern period. Unlike the woman writer, she left us only a few written testimonies, but there are now sources that can bring out, with different perspectives for analysis, new dimensions of reading, including the women familiarity with books.
Milena Sabato received a PhD (2006) in early modern history from the University of Salento, Italy, where she has since taught and researched. She qualified as Associate Professor in Modern History (2014 and 2018). Her main research interests are censorship, history of the book, gender history, and teaching Italian history, language, and culture to foreigners.
