Robert Kendrick


Assistant Professor in English and Gender, Women and Sexuality Studies

I teach and write on English and European literature of the early modern period, as well as the history of literary theory.  My current research focuses on understandings of the English nation under Queen Elizabeth I, specifically how translation of ancient texts and "original" literature portray what it means to be English in the late sixteenth century.
