    Amy Burnette is currently at work on her dissertation project, ​Praxis Memoriae: The Technique of Memory in English Renaissance Literature, 1580-1630, which explores how ideas circulating about memory, namely within the context of the humanist revival of the classical ars memoria, supplied authors with a theory and practice of literary invention. She has taught courses including ETS 113: Survey of British Literature to 1789, ETS 121: Introduction to Shakespeare, ETS 153: Interpretation of Fiction, ETS 182: Race and Literary Texts, and ETS/WGS 192: Gender and Literary Texts.
