LIT 520 Shakespeare
My work covers the fields of Renaissance literature, queer studies, and critical legal studies. I am currently teaching Shakespeare and will teach gay and lesbian film and literature in the spring. I am working on hate crime literature and the law, and am now reviewing the legal archives in relation to the Brandon Teena story as well writing about the hate crimes that bookend "Brokeback Mountain."
