Faculty & Staff – Nathaniel Leonard
Nathaniel Leonard, Ph.D., English
Prof. Leonard says he is thrilled to be joining Westminster’s English department faculty this fall. He has just finished his Ph.D. in English literature at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, where he had the opportunity to teach courses in Shakespeare, dramatic literature, world literature, and academic writing.
His research focuses on the relationship between reflexivity and dramatic genre in early modern English drama, and he has recently published an article on the subject entitled “‘Embracing the ‘Mongrel:’ John Marston’s The Malcontent, Antonio and Mellida, and the Development of English Early Modern Tragicomedy.”
In addition to his academic work, Prof. Leonard is committed to bringing dramatic texts to life on the stage and hopes that his extensive experience in both professional and student theatre will allow him to help strengthen the artistic community on Westminster’s campus. He can’t wait to get started in the fall and looks forward to getting to know the students and faculty.
