Kate Pilhuj

Associate Professor

Dr. Kate Pilhuj specializes in early modern literature, focusing on the drama of the period. A Philadelphian by birth, Dr. Pilhuj received her doctorate from the University of Miami after graduating from the decidedly colder Penn State University with a B.A. in English.

Dr. Pilhuj currently teaches classes featuring Shakespeare and his contemporaries, as well as literature surveys from the middles ages to the early eighteenth century and freshman composition. In the past, she has taught courses on Shakespeare and film, literary and filmic representations of Elizabeth I, and surveys of drama from ancient Greece to contemporary America. In her own research, Dr. Pilhuj examines the correlations between Renaissance cartography and national identity in early modern English drama. She is currently working on a manuscript-length project that examines these issues in the plays of Christopher Marlowe, Elizabeth Cary, Thomas Heywood, and Margaret Cavendish.

In addition to teaching, Dr. Pilhuj also serves as the faculty advisor for the English Club and The Shako, and is the Assistant Coach for The Citadel's Women's Rugby Team.
