Lindsey Row-Heyveld Assistant Professor
Office: Tower 915
Office Hours: T 1-3 and R 10-11:30
Dr. Row-Heyveld specializes in early modern English literature, especially early modern drama, and disability studies. Her research focuses on performances of disability, both on the stage and off, in 16th- and 17th-century England. Her current research project, Dissembling Disability, examines the theatrical tradition of able-bodied characters feigning disability in early modern drama. It investigates the literary, religious, and social components of that tradition, as well as its effects on the development of disability as a category of identity. She enjoys teaching everything from Shakespeare to X-Men and is looking forward to offering courses on Shakespeare and other early modern dramatists; crime and poverty in early modern England; monsters in medieval and early modern literature; and discourses of disability in literature and culture.
