Laurie Ellinghausen PROFESSOR

    Research Description
    Within the field of English literature, my research centers on the literature and culture of Tudor and Jacobean England. My approach brings a blend of social history with literary criticism to the study of poetry, plays, and popular prose written by Shakespeare, Milton, Jonson, and their contemporaries. I am particularly interested in how issues of class, labor, and occupation shaped both authorial approaches and representations of individuals in texts. I am also interested in gender, particularly masculinity as it intersects with social class.
