Savannah Jensen is a PhD student at the University of Georgia where she is an instructor of record for First Year Writing and a Writing Center consultant. Her research focuses on England's early modern period with a particular interest in the representations of ghosts across mediums, including drama, ballads, treatises, and pamphlets.
