I am a Doctoral Candidate in The PhD Program in English at The Graduate Center, CUNY and hold an Instructional Technology Fellowship from Macaulay Honors College. My teaching experience includes courses in Early British Literature, Shakespeare, and Shakespeare on Film at Hunter College. I am a member of the planning committee for the Society for the Study of Women in the Renaissance and am currently co-editing a book with Cristina Alfar on the correspondence of Elizabeth Bourne and her petition to the Privy Council for a divorce from her husband. My dissertation focuses on ways that women define themselves beyond the socially privileged category of wife in medieval and early modern literature and culture.
