Affiliation: English
Associate Professor of English

Professor Kitch studies and writes about a range of genres of early modern literature drama as they intersect with discourses of political economy, sexuality, and natural philosophy. His first book focused on Political Economy and the States of Literature in Early Modern England. His current research focuses on prophecy and divination as ancient forms of knowledge that shape the early modern world, with a special interest in Shakespeare and early modern theater as a forum for observing and interpreting what natural philosophers called the “Book of Nature.”
