About John Yargo

Last month, I successfully defended my PhD in the English Department at the University of Massachusetts Amherst. My specializations are early modern literature, the environmental humanities, and critical race studies. My dissertation explores early modern representations of environmental catastrophe, including The Tempest, Oroonoko, and the poetry of Milton. My peer-reviewed articles have been published or are forthcoming in Studies in Philology, the Journal for Early Modern Cultural Studies, and Shakespeare Studies.
