I teach courses in British literary history, women’s literature, theatre history, contemporary drama, Shakespeare, and composition. My current book project re-evaluates the place of women dramatists in the time of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. Outside of work, I enjoy being a part of community theater projects, playing piano, working my way through my ever expanding to-be-read pile, and cross stitching.
Briefly describe a favorite assignment or in-class activity.
I love using Reacting to the Past Games that immerse students in historic and cultural events through role playing, debate, and the study of primary texts.
What are you currently reading or watching for fun?
