DIANNE E. BERG, Visiting Assistant Professor, B.A. Harvard University, 2008; M.A. Clark University, 2010; Ph.D. Tufts University, 2019. Dianne Berg specializes in late medieval and early modern English literature. Her research focuses on representations of domestic violence and the literary appropriation of real-life scandals to address contemporary anxieties about treason, obedience, gender, and the state. Professor Berg’s work has appeared in Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation; Out of Sequence: The Sonnets Remixed; and three edited essay collections: Treason: Medieval and Early Modern Treachery, Betrayal, and Shame (Brill); Medieval and Early Modern Murder: Legal, Literary, and Historical Contexts (Boydell); and Shakespeares from Adaptation to Transformation (forthcoming, Punctum). She has taught classes at Boston College and Tufts University, and recent course offerings include “Elizabethan and Jacobean Drama,” “Medieval Women Writers,” and “The Arthurian Tradition.” dberg@clarku.edu
