Medieval and Renaissance Drama
Activities and Interests
My professional expertise extends through all kinds of literature from Chaucer through Shakespeare, plus manuscript and textual studies, but most of my publications have concerned medieval and renaissance drama.
I'm currently working on a book, Performing the Past, that renegotiates the social, intellectual, spiritual, literary and performative aspects of early English drama.
