Dr. James Lambert is an assistant professor of English and the director of The Writing Center at Southern Virginia University. Lambert received his Ph.D. from the University of Iowa and immediately went to work researching and teaching at the American University of Kuwait, where he served as Writing Program Administrator and Chair of the English Department.
Lambert came to Southern Virginia University in fall 2016 with an investment in the university’s goals to provide a fully immersive liberal arts degree. His interests include writing pedagogy, composition, and literary pedagogy, but his research agenda centers itself firmly in the literature and religious culture of Early Modern England. He has published articles in SEL, Philological Quarterly, This Rough Magic, Studies in Philology, and some others, and he has received fellowships to study lyrical emotions of the Renaissance at Dartmouth College, the Huntington Library, the Folger Shakespeare Library, and Dr. Williams’s Library.
When he is not teaching, Lambert is working on an edited collection of articles about adaptations of Shakespeare in the Arabian Gulf and on a monograph about lyrical joy in Early Modern religious literature.
