Tripthi Pillai joined the Coastal faculty in 2010, and is an Associate Professor of English Renaissance literature. She holds a Ph.D. in English from Loyola University Chicago. Her recent work focuses on theories of temporality and spatiality in the context of early modern drama. These days she is working on several critical and creative projects that also inform her teaching: a book-length study on Shakespeare and Photographical logics; a critical-creative piece on cuteness and violence in Bollywood's "item" musicals and Christopher Marlowe's plays; and an essay on the onticology of shoes in _The Two Gentlemen of Verona_. Dr. Pillai's teaching expertise are in the areas of Shakespeare studies, Renaissance English literature, critical theory, and cultural studies.
