Meghan C. Andrews is an early modernist whose research focuses on Shakespeare and Renaissance drama. Her work on the confluence of literary and material form and cultural history has been published or is forthcoming in Shakespeare Quarterly, Renaissance Drama, SEL, and Marlowe Studies, and her research has been supported by a Mellon/ACLS Fellowship among other awards. Andrews’ current book project argues that Shakespeare's social networks and institutional affiliations were underestimated but key influences on his plays and poems. By contextualizing his works within the social environments he inhabited during their composition, the book demonstrates that his works contributed to each environment's unique discourse, and offers new readings of his plays by examining the nature of each play's addition to the discourse. At Lycoming, she teaches not only Shakespeare and his contemporaries, but everything from classical to contemporary literature.
