Amanda M. Rogus is a first year PhD student who is also a member of the Textual and Digital Studies Graduate Certificate Program at UW. Last spring, Amanda received two coveted awards from Mary Baldwin University as the winner of both the Ariel Award for Leadership and Service and the Excellence in Teaching Award among all the Graduate Fellows in May of 2021. Amanda’s research and work has also earned her accolades at conferences around the country including earning the Best in Section Award at CEA in 2019 for her textual studies work with Romeo and Juliet, publication in the CEA Critic, and presentations at the Wooden O Conference, MATC, SAMLA, ATC, RGRS, and CEA. Amanda’s research has also been published multiple times in the US English Education Review, Journal of Psychology Research, and Spectrum. Amanda is the 2021 winner of the William T. Buice III Scholarship through the University of Virginia’s Rare Book School where she will use her fully funded grant to study textual history and bibliography in the summer of 2021. In addition to her work at RBS, Amanda has studied paleography and pedagogy at the Folger Shakespeare Library at their prestigious scholarly programs. Additionally, Amanda also holds an MS in Educational Psychology from Capella University where she focused on learning to teach students who have coped with trauma due to domestic violence or sexual assault. She also received her Trauma Informed Educator Certification through the OVSJG Trauma Training Institute. Amanda is currently the lead instructor for the Little Green Tea youth education program at Sweet Tea Shakespeare. In the summer of 2022, she will attend Prague Shakespeare Company’s Advanced Dramaturgy Fellowship Program – an exciting endeavor that has been delayed two summers due to the pandemic crisis.
