About

A Perkins-Cotsen Postdoctoral Fellow in the Princeton Society of Fellows, Bailey Sincox is a scholar of early modern English drama and performance. Her work spans the theater of Shakespeare and his contemporaries, gender studies, reception and adaptation studies (including contemporary theater, film, and the novel), and history of the book. At Princeton, she is currently at work on her first book project, Female Revenge on the Early Modern Stage. The book takes cues from contemporary film to chart how sixteenth- and seventeenth-century dramas of justice-seeking co-construct gender and genre.

Sincox received her Ph.D. from Harvard University. She holds masters degrees from Harvard and the University of Oxford, as well as a B.A. from Duke University. Her academic work has appeared or is forthcoming in Shakespeare StudiesShakespeare Survey, Shakespeare, Notes and Queries, and Borrowers and Lenders: The Journal of Shakespeare and Appropriation; she has also reviewed academic books for Shakespeare Bulletin and Renaissance Quarterly. She has presented papers at the Shakespeare Association of America Conference, British Shakespeare Association Conference, the Northeast Modern Language Association Conference, the Mahindra Humanities Center, and elsewhere. Beyond the academy, her writing has appeared in The Drift, Harvard Review, The Rambling, and Los Angeles Review of Books.

At Harvard, Sincox taught Humanities 10, an interdisciplinary first-year course that includes expository writing instruction. She also co-coordinated the Renaissance Colloquium (2017-2020), managed the Child Memorial Library, co-organized the Harvard-Yale Book History Conference (2018, 2019, 2020), and served as Lead Colloquium Coordinator for the English department (2020-22). With HarvardX, Harvard's open online education platform, she worked on the XSeries "Shakespeare's Outsiders," serving as lead curriculum developer for Shakespeare's Life and Work and Shakespeare's Othello: The Moor.

Sincox was a 2020 Harvard Horizons Scholar and a 2020-2021 graduate fellow at the Villa I Tatti. In 2022, She was selected to present as a Next Generation Plenary speaker (NextGenPlen) at the Shakespeare Association of America Conference.
