Julianne Sandberg originally hails from Muncie, Indiana, but also has called Dallas, Texas, and Chicago, Illinois, home. Before coming to Samford, she served as Visiting Assistant Professor of English at Wheaton College. Her scholarly interests center on early modern British literature (including Shakespeare, Herbert, Lanyer, and Milton), literary form (especially drama and poetry), Reformation history and Eucharistic theology, and how all of these concerns intersect in messy and surprising ways to shape the embodied experience of medieval and early modern people.

Beyond life on campus, Sandberg enjoys hiking, traveling, running, sipping tea, frequenting new restaurants, and reading all manner of books. She doesn’t (usually) read Old English poetry on the weekends, but she does enjoy a rousing Shakespeare performance and is always on the hunt for a stellar staging, whether musical, theatrical, artistic or comedic.
