Professional Bio

Jayme is a PhD candidate studying early modern literature. Her academic interests include early modern constructions of gender in relation to genre and authorship, and early modern conceptions of immortality, especially as they relate to the body. Her dissertation, tentatively entitled "The Dead Beloved: Genre and the Body in Spenser, Marlowe, Shakespeare, and Milton," aims to show the significance of the dead beloved as a literary trope and a cultural icon. Her research for this project therefore seeks to combine aspects of literary history and material and visual culture (e.g., tombs, epitaphs, monuments, etc.). In summer 2017, Jayme taught a course entitle "Monuments and Memorials: London's Rhetorics of Remembrance" in the English Department's annual study abroad program Literary London. She has also taught courses in the Department of Comparative Literature: Myths and Mythology (CMLIT 108) and Virtual Worlds (CMLIT 013). Jayme also regularly teaches Technical Writing (ENGL 202C), Writing for the Social Sciences (ENGL 202A), and Introduction to Rhetoric and Composition (ENGL 015). In the 2015-2016 academic year, Jayme served as the Vice President for the Early Period Studies Group and as the Graduate Studies Committee Representative for the English Graduate Organization (EGO).
