Dr. Jessica D. Ward is Assistant Professor of Early British Literature at Mercy College. She received her B.A. and M.A. from the University of North Texas and her Ph.D. from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro. Her work focuses on the intersections of medieval literature, theology, gender, and the law. Additional teaching and research interests include early modern drama, gender studies, moral philosophy, economic criticism, multilingualism, multiculturalism, composition studies, and digital humanities. Her scholarship has appeared in Studies in Philology. Current projects include a book-length study on how late fourteenth-century London writers define and engage with the vice of avarice in their works.
Serving most of the university’s students through three core classes, the College Writing Program at UNCG teaches writing through an awareness of rhetoric so that students can craft their arguments with a specific audience, situation, and purpose in mind.
