About Courtney Herber

I am a scholar, author, and educator.

My primary research interests include theatre, performance, queenship & consortship, royal studies, popular culture, and gender studies in early modern England.  I have also presented work on honor plays and Spanish Golden Age theatre as well as on the Werburgh Street Theatre, the first purpose-built theatre in Ireland. My methodology is well situated in history but I am an interdisciplinary scholar whose focus on drama, performance, and representation places me a bit outside of ‘traditional’ history.

I also have a lot of fun doing #OnThisDay posts on Mastodon, and even though I’ve got a twitter account (@courtney_herber), I never check it, so you can ping me here or on mastodon!
