Profile Picture of Lamanda Conrad

M.A. Literary & Cultural Studies, University of Oklahoma, 2017

Research Interests:
Lamanda Conrad's research examines how religion and politics, during the European Reformation, influenced literature and social norms. Particularly, her work focuses on the written works of John Donne, John Milton, and William Shakespeare. Her thesis explores relious casuistry in 16th and 17th centuries England and how "silence" in Shakespeare's Hamlet represents the religious and political climate of the period. Currently, Lamanda is focused on teaching writing for the English Department.

2017: “But Break My Heart for I Must Hold My Tongue: Silence, Casuistry & Diplomacy in Shakespeare’s Hamlet.” Presented at the Multidisciplinary Renaissance Conference at The Newberry Center for Renaissance Studies, Chicago, Illinois.

2015: “Let Not Thine Hearts Be Troubled: Body & Soul in John Donne’s Devotions.” Presented at the Seventeenth-Annual Shakespeare Conference at The Shakespeare Institute, Stratford-Upon-Avon, England.
