Stephen Spiess serves as Thinking Matters Fellow at Stanford University, a three-year postdoctoral position that allows him to teach alongside senior faculty within the school's innovative introductory studies curriculum. He specializes in early modern English literature and culture, with particular investments in Shakespeare and the interrelations of sex, language, and knowledge in the English Renaissance. He is currently completing a book project entitled “Epistemology and the Whore: Language, Prostitution, and Knowledge in Shakespeare's England,” and has published works in Shakespeare Survey (2014), A Handbook to Shakespeare and Embodiment: Gender, Sexuality, Race (forthcoming, 2015), and Renaissance Quarterly (forthcoming). Additional research interests include English Renaissance drama, feminist literary criticism and theory, queer theory, cultural studies, and historical epistemology as literary criticism. Stephen comes to Stanford by way of Brown University (BA), Dartmouth College (MA), and the University of Michigan (MA & PhD in English Language & Literature). Along the way, he spent four years as a teacher, advisor, and athletic coach at St. Paul’s School (Concord, New Hampshire), and later served as an assistant men’s soccer coach at Middlebury College.
