Jessica Lugo (she/her/hers) is a PhD student at the Graduate Center of the City University of New York. Her research includes the study of classical influences in Early Modern English Drama and the means by which the classics are routinely fractured in the service of an Elizabethan/Jacobean social agenda. Her pedagogical interests focus on the state of the university, diversifying student admission practices, and the ways in which the humanities can become more accessible to entry-level students.
