Areas of Expertise

Shakespeare, Early Modernism, and Literary and Psychoanalytic Theory--much of my teaching falls into these areas. My current writing project focuses on the intersections between aesthetics and political thought in the Renaissance era: Shakespeare, but also figures from Leonardo da Vinci to Thomas Hobbes and Diego Velasquez, all of whom pose compelling questions about the relations between art and political subjectivity.
