Overview

McKenna Rose specializes in Early Modern Drama, Ecocriticism, and Digital Pedagogy. Her current book project, Hoarding the Renaissance: The Matter of Ecology on the Early English Stage envisions the theater as a hoard, or a constellation of objects, actors, and language that survive from prior contexts before taking their places on stage. The constant cycling and recycling of linguistic and material substrates that compose the Renaissance theater accounts for plays by Christopher Marlowe, William Shakespeare, Thomas Middleton, and Ben Jonson, as well as the environmental devistation of our present moment. She has work published and forthcoming in Shakespeare and Early Modern Culture. Along with serving as the Writing Center Direct at Oxford College, Emory for the 2017-18 academic year, Dr. Rose has taught courses in Shakespeare, the History of Drama, Early British Literature, and Digital Writing.
