Rebecca M. Quoss-Moore, Ph.D., earned her doctorate from the University of Arkansas. 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 the system of coding and subversion within which these performers worked.

Her ongoing research extends her work with early modern women writers, with their preservations of resistant voices, and with reading and writing systems as responses to dominant cultural forces. Her research interests include the global early modern, broadly defined; gender, queer, and feminist theories; and, subversive verse.
