Rebecca M. Quoss-Moore, Ph.D., earned her doctorate from the University of Arkansas in 2016 and served as a Fulbright Teaching Fellow before coming to UCO in 2018.

Her first book project focuses on poetry, gender and subversive rhetoric at the court of Henry VIII. The work examines courtier-poets as performers whose compositions are expressive projections of their resistance to imposed social changes and restores the centrality of women to this courtly system of position-taking.

Quoss-Moore's research interests include early modern women writers and their preservations of resistant voices, reading and writing systems as responses to dominant cultural forces, and early modern queer and gender studies.
