Outside the ghost town of Shakespeare, NM

I am an Associate Professor of English at the University of New Mexico, where I teach early modern English literature. While Shakespeare and Milton are my bread and butter, I also teach adaptations of these writers’ works, transhistorical tragic theory, and early modern plays about race, gender, and religion. My scholarship, including my writing about pedagogy, focuses on the intersections of literature and the body.

In particular, I am interested in the ways that early modern English literature expresses and creates experiences of revolution. These experiences are important because they are not confined to the past but resonate in the present. How might we understand the intersection of embodied motions, like turning and marching, and historical movements, whether the Civil Wars of seventeenth-century England or the current #MeToo Movement?
