Professional Experience

David Morrow works primarily on intersections between ideology and form in early modern English literature culture—focused especially on questions around social relations, the land, and literary history. His current projects include an essay on land tenure in Shakespearean romance, and another on 17th Century farming manuals and present-day ecocriticism. He has served as coordinator of the master’s program in English at The College of Saint Rose, and as department chair. He will again work as department chair beginning in May 2017.

Morrow’s recent courses have included Shakespeare, Renaissance Drama, Shakespeare on Film, Literary Theory, Introduction to Literary Studies, and the Senior Seminar.
