Dr. Greenberg specializes in 16th and 17th century English literature with a focus on intersections of gender and class. Her dissertation focuses on how categories of labor and gender influence one another as shown in representations of women's work in early modern literature. Her primary teaching and research interests lie in the drama of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, Shakespeare and film, Renaissance women’s writing, as well as commonwealth literature. Current and future courses include Shakespeare, Early Modern Women Writers, Vampires in Literature and Culture, as well as general education courses like FYS and English 101. Current projects include articles on the popular voice in early modern drama and the status of women's writing as work or leisure in the 16th century.
