Sarah Balkin

 

Sarah Balkin earned her BA (honours, 2004) at the University of California, Los Angeles and her MA (2009) and PhD (2012) at Rutgers University. Grants and fellowships from Rutgers, the Mellon Foundation, and the University of Melbourne have supported her research.

She works across theatre studies and literary studies, with particular expertise in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. She is the author of Spectral Characters: Genre and Materiality on the Modern Stage (University of Michigan Press, 2019). She is currently at work on a project on comedy in the US, UK, and Australia, emphasizing the historical emergence of deadpan (1830-1930) and its derivations in contemporary queer and feminist comedy.
