My primary teaching area is Renaissance Drama, especially Shakespeare, but I also enjoy teaching Film, Nineteenth Century Fiction, and Drama from other cultures and periods. My work focuses on social mobility and status conflicts in early modern England, and I seek to understand that changing social field by using my research in central court records circa 1603-1625 to better interpret Jacobean comedies. In my Writing Program classes, I ask students to write original arguments about Shakespeare’s texts that respond to other critical interpretations of the plays and demonstrate an awareness of Shakespeare’s historical contexts.
