Zoë Rodine is the Director of University Programs and Partnerships at the Playwrights' Center. For the previous seven years, she taught literature and pedagogy at the University of Minnesota, Metropolitan State University, and Macalester College, with expertise in everything from first-year rhetoric courses to Black literatures to experimental modernist texts. As a researcher, her work focuses on the ways that depictions of embodiment in text have shifted and changed over the past century and how writers push at the boundaries of who and what a human being can be. She's a writer, an occasional singer and performer, and a great appreciator (and sometimes-creator) of good food. She holds a BA from Macalester College and a PhD from the University of Minnesota.
