Jennifer Low, a native New Yorker, earned her B.A. from Oberlin College and her M.A. and Ph. D. from the University of Virginia. In 1996, she came to teach at Florida Atlantic University, where she is now an associate professor, teaching Renaissance literature, Shakespeare, and modern drama. She has published several articles in such venues as Comparative Drama, The Centennial Review, and Philological Quarterly. Her book, Manhood and the Duel: Masculinity in Early Modern Drama and Culture, was published by Palgrave-Macmillan in 2003. She is now at work on a transhistorical project involving the structuring of the stage-space in the theater, which examines performative elements in dramas ranging from the classical Roman play The Menaechmi to the contemporary dramas of Edward Albee and David Henry Hwang.
