ABOUT ME

A native of South Carolina, I received a BA in History and an AB in Classics from the College of Charleston in 2005 and an MA in Classics from the University of Georgia in 2014. I recently completed a doctorate in Hispanic Studies at the University of Georgia, defending my dissertation,  “Accessing Texts, Acquiring Language, and Projecting Prestige: Spaniards Learning Greek from Juan de Mena to Francisco de Quevedo,” in December of 2018. This summer I begin a position as Visiting Assistant Professor of Spanish at Washington and Lee University.

I am currently the managing editor of Bulletin of the Comediantes, the international journal of Golden Age Spanish comedia studies, having previously served as its editorial fellow and editorial assistant since 2017.

My research at the Biblioteca Nacional de España and other archives has been made possible through the generous support of the Willson Center for the Humanities and Arts and the UGA Graduate School. I received training in paleography and codicology at the Universidad Complutense de Madrid and through Spain's Fundación de Ciencias de la Documentación.  I have presented at the Renaissance Society of America, the Society for Renaissance and Baroque Hispanic Poetry, and the Society for the History of the Humanities, and my work will appear in forthcoming volumes of the journals Romance Notes and Calíope.
