I am a Shakespeare professor at Worcester Polytechnic Institute in Worcester, MA. Along with my friend and fellow Shakespearean Caroline Bicks (Boston College), I write a humor blog called Everyday Shakespeare (http://www.everydayshakespeare.com). I am also the author of the book Reading the Jewish Woman on the Elizabethan Stage (Ashgate, 2008). In addition to academic articles, I've written essays and op-eds for publications such as The Washington Post, Tikkun, McSweeney's, The Morning News, Lilith, and The Chronicle of Higher Education. I am currently working on a memoir.
