Areas of Specialty

Rachael Deagman Simonetta works on late medieval and early modern British literature. She teaches traditional, hybrid and online courses for the English Department and Continuing Education. Currently, she is completing a book chapter for a collected volume called Rethinking the Secular in the Age of Shakespeare. Her interdisciplinary book project, Visualizing Virtue, shows how architecture provides an unrecognized model of virtue formation in late medieval English literature; writers figure virtue, sin and salvation in spatial terms. She holds a BA from the University of Virginia, MA from the University of Colorado, Boulder, and a PhD from Duke University.
