Carissa Harris, Associate Professor of English, Temple University
Carissa Harris is Associate Professor of English at Temple University and the author of Obscene Pedagogies: Transgressive Talk and Sexual Education in Late Medieval Britain (Cornell, 2018). Her research on gender and sexuality analyzes medieval literary and legal texts in conversation with one another as well as with 21st-century news events and legal cases, such as her book chapter discussing Geoffrey Chaucer’s Reeve’s Tale alongside footballer Ched Evans’s rape retrial. She has also published essays on medieval histories of intoxication and consent; rape, anger, and feminist art; and medieval lyrics about unplanned pregnancy.
