Grace LaFrentz

Grace LaFrentz is a third-year English PhD student from Huntsville, Alabama. Her research interests broadly address questions of gender, authorship, and classical reception (with a focus on Ovid) in early modern literature, and particularly in early modern women’s writing. Her master’s thesis examined the influence of gendered classical ideas about the material of wax on questions of memorialization in John Webster’s play, The Duchess of Malfi.
