Rebecca Hixon

I am an Assistant Professor of English at Lourdes University, where I teach courses on writing and composition, adaptation, Shakespeare, and British Literature. I received my PhD from the University of Michigan in 2023.

My research focuses on how contemporary adaptations of some of Shakespeare’s most controversial plays can act as windows into popular culture, genre, and current intersections of race, gender, sexuality, and class.
