Beth Charlebois received her B.A. (Government and International Affairs) and M.A. (English) from Georgetown University and her Ph.D. in English literature from Northwestern University where she specialized in English Renaissance Drama. Her research to date has been primarily devoted to exploring the historical intersection between jealousy in Renaissance drama and early modern theology, but her teaching and writing are also animated by her more contemporary interests in performance and film theory and criticism. Beth is especially enthusiastic about her ongoing work with The Chicago Shakespeare Theater, for whom she regularly delivers pre-performance lectures and workshops. Among her many teaching interests, she is particularly passionate about her courses in Shakespeare and literature and film.
