Rachel Lacy Boersma


Rachel Lacy Boersma is a PhD candidate in the University of British Columbia Department of English. She specializes in late medieval and early modern English drama, with particular interest in material theology and trans-Reformation stages. Her dissertation will examine the change in dramatic functions of onstage props, gestures, sights, and sounds in light of English theological conversions from an expansive Catholic sacramentalism to a pared-down Anglican one.
