Bio

Andrew Majeske, associate professor of English, received his doctorate from the University of California Davis, where he specialized in the intersection of law and literature in the English Renaissance. He also holds a law degree from Loyola University of Chicago, and a Masters degree in literature from Duquesne University. He was a practicing attorney from 1986 to 1997, first in Chicago, and later in Pittsburgh. In 2006 his book entitled Equity in English Renaissance Literature: Thomas More and Edmund Spenser was published by Routledge Press. In 2009 his edited collection Justice, Women, and Power in English Renaissance Drama, was published by Fairleigh Dickinson University Press. Professor Majeske has recently published essays on Shakespeare's Measure for Measure and The Merchant of Venice. He is currently working on a book about Galileo's 1588 lecture addressing the geography of Dante's Inferno.
He teaches the early literature survey course, Shakespeare, and various law and literature offerings in the English Department, as well as courses in Justice Studies. Those students interested in going on to law school will be interested to know that in addition to his experience practicing law and teaching, he spent two years as one of the writers of the LSAT, and he has taught legal writing and appellate advocacy at the law school level.
