I completed my PhD at Deakin University in 2011, using a combination of feminist and psychoanalytic methodologies to analyse representations of women in Renaissance literature. I am currently employed as a Research Associate at the University of Southern Queensland, looking at the use of digital curation tools for cultivating information literacy skills. Drawing on my background in Elizabethan and Jacobean literature, this article will argue that the femme fatale can be re-imagined on the Renaissance stage.
