I am a drama specialist; in both teaching and research I’m interested in the intersections of dramatic literature, performance theory, and theatre history. My publications are fairly eclectic—I’ve written on female Hamlets, theatre of the invisible-made-visible, plays about the 1820s Greek Revolution, Byron’s secret literary influences—and I encourage personally-engaged, historically-embedded, idiosyncratic essay writing in my courses. My current research projects explore connections between theatre and tourism in Greece (where I teach study abroad courses) and theatre as a space for developing intimacy. You can usually find me teaching Shakespeare and other courses on drama, performance & social change, British Romanticism, the classical tradition, literary criticism, and essay writing.
