Regula Meyer Evitt

Associate Professor

I’m a medievalist who specializes in medieval and early modern drama, English and continental.  I teach Marie de France, Dante, Chaucer, and Shakespeare as well as a spectrum of medieval period and genre courses (drama, romance, fabliaux, dream visions, adversus Judaeos literature).  In my research, I’m currently focusing on dramatic representations of Jews in western medieval Europe.  Recent publications include: “’He is inwardly flayde’: Inscription and the Wakefield Buffeting’s Self-incriminating 'Jew'” (forthcoming), “Incest Disguised: Ottonian Influence at Gandersheim and Hrotsvit’s Abraham” (Comparative Drama), "Eschatology, Millenarian Apocalypticism and the Liturgical Anti-Judaism of the Medieval Prophet Plays" in The Apocalyptic Year 1000 (Oxford UP).  I’ve co-authored a book on women in medieval culture (Minding the Body) and am working on a book tentatively titled Antijudaism and the Medieval Prophet Plays.  Currently I'm teaching part-time and and serving as Associate Dean of the College.  I'm an avid skier, hiker, and crazy about Airedales and Maine coons.
