Amelia Zurcher

Director of the Honors Program
Associate Professor, English

My teaching and scholarship focus on Renaissance and seventeenth century British literature. I am particularly interested in genre, historiography, narrative, and gender.

My book Seventeenth-Century English Romance: Allegory, Ethics, and Politics was published by Palgrave in 2007. I edited Judith Man’s Epitome of the Historie of Faire Argenis and Polyarchus for the Early Modern Englishwoman Series from Ashgate Press, and have published articles on a variety of topics in early modern literature.

I teach courses in sixteenth and seventeenth century British literature, including Shakespeare, studies in genre, and studies in gender and literature. As Director of Marquette’s Women’s and Gender Studies Program, I also teach the Introduction to Women’s and Gender Studies and the program capstone course.
