Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own inspired Dr. Deborah Uman to study women writers and translators in Renaissance England, which led her to write one of her books, Women as Translators in Renaissance England. Her scholarly work has focused on Mary Sidney and Aphra Behn, as well as John Milton and William Shakespeare. After serving as the director of the women and gender studies program at St. John Fisher College, she now works as dean of the College of Arts & Sciences at Weber State.
Don’t miss Dr. Uman’s Global Women’s Studies colloquium presentation about her current research on gutsy girls in adaptations of Shakespeare plays intended for teenaged audiences.
