Roland Greene

Director

Roland Greene assumed directorship of the Stanford Humanities Center in September 2019. As Director of the Center, he holds the Anthony P. Meier Family Professorship in the Humanities. He is also the Mark Pigott KBE Professor in the School of Humanities and Sciences and is professor of English and comparative literature.

His research and teaching are concerned with the early modern literatures of England, Latin Europe, and the transatlantic world, and with poetry and poetics from the Renaissance to the present.

Greene received his doctorate from Princeton University and previously held appointments at Harvard University and the University of Oregon. He is the author of several books, including Five Words: Critical Semantics in the Age of Shakespeare and Cervantes (2013); Unrequited Conquests: Love and Empire in the Colonial Americas (1999); and Post-Petrarchism: Origins and Innovations of the Western Lyric Sequence (1991). Greene is also the editor in chief of the fourth edition of the Princeton Encyclopedia of Poetry and Poetics (2012), considered the leading reference book on poetry. He is a past president of the Modern Language Association and a member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.

A member of the Stanford faculty since 2001, he is co-chair and founder of two research workshops in which most of his PhD students participate: Renaissances and Poetics. Additionally, Greene is actively involved with the Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in the Humanities, the Bing Overseas Studies Program, and the Program in Structured Liberal Education (SLE), of which he is a former director.

Greene is also the founder and director of Arcade, a digital salon for literary studies and the humanities.

Davies currently teaches a course in the Program in Feminist, Gender, and Sexuality Studies at Stanford. Her book Saving San Francisco: Relief and Recovery After the 1906 Disaster (Temple University Press, 2012) examines the social and political disruptions afflicting the city in the wake of the great 1906 earthquake and fire. Her interest in the social consequences of disasters was sparked by her work as a San Francisco firefighter.
