Jessica Floyd

Jessica Floyd received her PhD from the Language, Literacy, and Culture program at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County in December 2017.  Her dissertation, Jib-booms, Barrels, and Dead-eyes: Singing Sex in Sea Chanteys, looked closely at chantey narratives for the way in which they grapple with gender and sexuality.  Current research is focused on gender and sexuality in bawdy texts, more generally.  Dr. Floyd has been teaching at the college level since 2011.
