Info to come.
Dr. Jane Carducci of Winona State University
Cross Gender Casting and Identity in Twelfth Night
Jane Carducci earned her B.A. in English from Colorado College in Colorado Springs and then, much to her parents’ dismay, moved to Nevada, and dealt blackjack for eleven years. Feeling that, for her, the casinos were a dead-end street, Carducci completed the M.A. and Ph.D. programs from the University of Nevada in Reno. Her specialty is the English Renaissance with minor fields in poetry and linguistics. Her publications about Shakespeare, composition, and pedagogy have appeared in such journals as Literature and Psychology, Language and Literature, and Cahiers Elisabethains.
