Lisa Gay Jennings was born in Kingston, Jamaica and immigrated to the United States during her teens. She earned her Ph.D. in English Literature from Florida State University. Her research interests include early modern English poetry, Spenser, Donne, Shakespeare, critical race studies and gender and sexuality studies. Her scholarship centers on forms of dissent in early modern English poetry as well as Caribbean poetry. Currently, she is examining alchemic and medieval manuscripts of the English Renaissance in order to ascertain how Spenser appropriates alchemic emblems for the The Faerie Queene as a means of establishing discourses on sexuality and race.
