Anna Rosensweig received her Ph.D. in French from the University of Minnesota in July 2014. She specializes in early modern literature and culture, the intersections of literature and political theory, and performance studies. Her dissertation argues that early modern drama participates in and extends a political debate about the possibility of legitimate resistance, which begins during the French Wars of Religion (1562-1629). She is currently working on revising her dissertation into a book manuscript, which is tentatively titled, Tragic Opposition: Rights of Resistance on the Early Modern Stage. Although her primary research focuses on the early modern period, Rosensweig is also interested in more contemporary questions of human rights and literature.
