Sujata Iyengar* (Ph.D., Stanford University, 1998), Professor, specializes in English Renaissance Literature, Shakespearean Adaptation and Appropriation, Book History and Arts, and the Health Humanities.

Dr. Iyengar's first book was the germinal monograph Shades of Difference: Mythologies of Skin Color in Early Modern England (University of Pennsylvania Press, 2005); her Shakespeare's Medical Language was reissued from Bloomsbury/Arden in Spring 2014,  her co-authored textbook for the French agrégation exam, 'Not Like an old play': Shakespeare's Love's Labour's Lost appeared from Fahrenheit Editions in November 2014, and her edited collection Disability, Health, and Happiness in the Shakespearean Body was published by Routledge in January 2015. Her article "Why Ganymede Faints and the Duke of York Weeps," which appeared in Shakespeare Survey 67, integrates book history and the history of medicine. Her earlier explorations of the human body in written and visual representations include an award-winning article in ELH (2002), and essays in journals such as Shakespeare Quarterly, Shakespeare Survey, Literature/Film Quarterly, Shakespeare, Postmodern Culture, Medieval and Renaissance Drama in England, and Cahiers Élisabéthains as well as in peer-reviewed collections from the Folger Shakespeare Library, Purdue University Press, the University of Pennsylvania Press, the University of Toronto Press, Ashgate, Palgrave, and Routledge.

Dr. Iyengar spent academic year 2014-2015 on a Study in a Second Discipline Fellowship at the Lamar Dodd School of Art, taking courses in Letterpress, Paper-making, Book Arts and Typography. Her year in the Art School inspired her to begin writing poetry as well as to teach it; her free and formal lyrics have been published in a few juried "little magazines" in print and online, including Punctum Press's Lunch; Mezzo Cammin; Upstart Crow; Unsplendid; and Measure.
