Dr. Meg Dupuis is a master faculty specialist in the Department of English at Western Michigan University.

Dupuis received her doctorate from the University of Oregon in 1998. Her research focuses on issues of authorship, gender and authority in sixteenth- and seventeenth-century England. She teaches both undergraduate and graduate courses in renaissance literature, Shakespeare studies in drama, feminist theory and world literature. She co-edited Approaches to Teaching Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew for the Modern Language Association and has written articles on Shakespeare's sonnets, the influence of folk tales on early modern texts and incest as a theme in early modern literature. In 2004, she participated in an National Endowment for the Humanities seminar on "Shakespeare's Playhouses: Inside and Out" at the Blackfriars Theater in Staunton, Virginia and at the Globe Theater in London. She regularly teaches Shakespeare in performance and mentors graduate students in Shakespeare pedagogy.

She has served on numerous department, college and University committees and in 2005 received the College of Arts and Sciences Faculty Award for Distinguished Service. Dupuis is an affiliate in the Department of Gender and Women's Studies where she has taught the senior Feminist Theory capstone course.
