I am very excited to announce the inauguration of a new book series, a collaboration between the Hudson Strode Program in Renaissance Studies and the University of Alabama Press. This new series, "Strode Studies in Early Modern Literature and Culture," which I will edit, will publish innovative scholarship that examines the literatures and cultures of the early modern world. The series invites scholarly monographs (and, where appropriate, collections of especially groundbreaking scholarly essays) that shed new light on early modern texts and cultural products by putting them in dialogue with contemporary critical concerns. While focusing primarily on the English tradition, this series welcomes studies (written in English) of other early modern European literatures and cultures, with particular interest in Italy and Spain.
Please see the flyer for more details!
And if you will be attending RSA in Toronto or SAA in DC and would like to discuss a book project with me, please DM or email me and I'll be happy to set up a time to meet with you.
More announcements and details will be forthcoming in the months ahead, but please do spread the word to all who may be interested!

Very pleased that "Judith Shakespeare's Brother," my essay on Woolf, Shakespearean romance, women, and inheritance, is out in the current issue of MLQ. I gave an early version of this paer at the Shakespeare Association of America (SAA) annual meeting in Atlanta in 2017, as part of a panel on "Feminist Formalism in Early Modern Literary Studies" with Jennifer Higginbotham and Lara Dodds, chaired by Evelyn Gajowski.
My essay on Eve is now up on the open-access Women Writers in Context platform! It's part of the 30th anniversary of the Women Writers Project, which they are celebrating with a new series of short explorations called: “Thirty Years, Thirty Ideas.” Check it out!
Three students in the Strode Program have recently won prestigious English Department awards! Jess Hamlet (3rd year Strode PhD) has won “Outstanding Research by a Doctoral Student,” Theodore Nollert (2nd year Strode MA) has won “Outstanding Research by a Master’s Student,” and MK Foster (4th year Strode PhD) has won “Outstanding Teaching by a Doctoral Student.” All three winners will now have the honor of representing English in the competition for Outstanding Awards at the College of Arts and Sciences.
Well done, Strodies! Congratulations to all!!
I'm very pleased to announce that my book, The Dynamics of Inheritance on the Shakespearean Stage is now available in paperback from Cambridge, at a much more affordable price than the hardcover!

The Strode Program is very excited to be hosting this conference, which addresses teaching Shakespeare to non-English majors and members of the local community. Panels will include papers from both academic and non-academic settings, including those that consider dominant teaching philosophies and praxes currently in use in the university classroom and those that discuss various outreach programs.
