Emily Silk

Editor for History, Literary Studies, Religion

A woman wearing a black blouse, purple jacket, and eyeglasses.

I am acquiring in religion, literature, and history. Recently, I have signed books on the history of Chinese inclusion in the American West; the role of the character sketch in early modern Europe; the Black Atlantic press sphere in the era of decolonization; Indian Ocean pearl diving under the British empire; and Protestant German politics after WWII.

I also manage two series at Harvard: The I Tatti Studies in Italian Renaissance History, published in collaboration with the Villa I Tatti; and Harvard Historical Studies, published in collaboration with the Harvard History Department.
