Jeanie Grant Moore

Lecturer

Before coming to the University of San Diego, Jeanie Grant Moore was a faculty member of the English department at the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh. While her teaching focused primarily on Shakespeare and British literature, she also taught courses for the Women’s Studies and Theatre departments, and she team-taught courses in the History department. She served as graduate director for the department and later for the university. During her eleven years in Wisconsin, Moore traveled with students on study tours to France, Italy and the United Kingdom, and she created, taught, and administered semesters abroad at Cambridge University. Since leaving Wisconsin in 2007, she has guided interested adults on educational tours abroad, and she has continued to teach study abroad programs for the University of Wisconsin. This year at USD she will teach Shakespeare, Introduction to Literature and Composition, Early British Literature, and Women in Literature.

Scholarly and Creative Work

Moore’s publications include articles on British and Italian literature of the medieval and Renaissance periods. Her book-length manuscript addresses the issues of power, gender, and the visual on the Elizabethan stage.

Teaching Interests

Favorite courses have focused on Shakespeare and British literature at all levels, but Moore also enjoys teaching courses that thematically link writers from a variety of periods and geographic locations. She sees literature as arising from and contributing to the social, historical, and cultural milieu in which they were written, and she therefore emphasizes historical background as an important element of her courses.
