Lecturer in English Literature, Binghamton University, State University of New York
Meisha Lohmann is a lecturer in the English Department and the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at Binghamton University. Her research focuses on gender and sexuality in medieval literature and drama, and particularly on the ways that performances of identity are shaped by the places people inhabit. Her dissertation, "Drama without Theaters: Religious Drama in Medieval England and the Production of Space," explores how dramatic performances in England's streets and fields shaped the places and the people involved in these productions as producers, performers, and audience members.
She teaches a wide range of courses at Binghamton University, from "Children's Literature" to "Queer Knights and Sexy Nuns," an investigation of medieval gender and sexuality. She also has a particular passion for enlivening her local community and co-founded an on-going lecture series in 2016 at the Coburn Free Library in Owego, NY to create opportunities to learn and discuss information outside the typical classroom setting.
