Cora Fox, PhD

Associate Professor of English, Arizona State University

I am Associate Professor of English and Interim Director of the Institute for Humanities Research at Arizona State University, where I lead our Medical Humanities initiative and the Imagining Health project, a collaboration between the IHR and the Center for Humanities in Medicine at Mayo Clinic in Arizona. My research has focused on English Renaissance literature and culture, with particular attention to classical intertextuality, the history of emotions, and gender studies. I am writing a book on the history of well-being and happiness, particularly as these emotions are defined and redefined through Shakespeare. I am engaged in cultural analysis of the history of positive emotions through the integration of Affect Studies and Intertextuality and reception studies.
