Don Rodrigues

Don Rodrigues is an Assistant Professor of English at the University of Memphis specializing in early modern literature, theories of social justice, and digital humanities. His first book, Shakespeare’s Queer Analytics: Distant Reading and Collaborative Intimacy in Love’s Martyr, marshals queer theory and computational tools to demonstrate that the coterie volume Love’s Martyr (1601) betrays extensive evidence of Shakespearean collaboration at a time when Shakespeare is often thought to have been working in solitude. This book is under contract with the Arden Shakespeare Series at Bloomsbury. In the Department of English at Memphis, Rodrigues teaches graduate and undergraduate courses with an intersectional approach to constructions and representations of race, gender, and sexuality. Rodrigues has held fellowships at The Folger Shakespeare Library, the Digital Humanities Center at Vanderbilt University, and the metaLAB at Harvard University.
