Incorporating anti-racist practices in the study of British and American literature

 

Kasey Evans and Kelly Wisecup, along with Harrison Graves and Nina Moon, graduate students in English, will create modules that expand the content of survey courses in British and American literary traditions in order to challenge traditional conceptions of early American studies. 

Evans, associate professor of English, specializes in Renaissance literature. Her current project, “Renaissance Resurrections: Making the Dead Speak in Reformation Texts,” considers how grief and mourning are translated into new literary forms following the Protestant Reformation.
