Visiting Teaching Professor in English

Lee Emrich’s research looks at early modern English literature using media studies, performance studies, and feminist approaches. She is currently at work on her book manuscript, Wearable Techne: Dressing Knowledge in Early Modern England, which explores how literature interrogates the performance capabilities of human-wearable technology relationships in the 16th and 17th centuries. Her research particularly focuses on the mediation of professional productivity, labor, and knowledge through clothing-body enmeshment. Her work has been published in Theatre Survey, and she has a forthcoming book chapter “Transmedia Shakespeare” with MIT Press.

Her teaching utilizes writing-across-the-disciplines approaches with an emphasis on genre and rhetoric and media. In addition to her experience teaching literature and writing in university classrooms, she is also a former cardiac ICU nurse.
