Michael Meere specializes in the literatures and cultures of the French-speaking world from the late fifteenth to the early eighteenth centuries. He is the editor of French Renaissance and Baroque Drama: Text, Performance, Theory (2015), and he has completed a book manuscript on the performance of societal, political, and religious violence in sixteenth-century French tragedy. Additional interests include contemporary French-language theater and performance, Indigenous studies, queer studies, and disability studies. At Wesleyan he has taught courses ranging from elementary French to upper-level seminars on topics such as spectacles of violence, self-representation, love and loss, and imagining the "New World."
