Ms. Alison Wright
Alie Wright teaches freshman English and senior English electives. She is also a member of the residential staff and lives (along with her pets and her husband Ian) at Lipke House. She earned her BA in English from Wellesley College in 2006, after which she worked in the library and English Department at Nichols School. She earned an MA in English Literature from University at Buffalo in 2010 before joining the PhD Program in Brown University’s English Literature Department. She spends her free time working on her dissertation, which is about feminist and queer theory, reader-response theory, and the complex temporality of adaptations of early modern literature (Spenser, Shakespeare, and Milton) written for children. At Brown, she taught courses on Shakespeare, medieval and early modern literature, the representation of women in Shakespeare, and writing the academic essay.
When she’s not teaching, reading, or writing, she enjoys spending time with her cats and dog, gardening, making and eating homemade ice cream, and talking about feminism on the internet.
