My research and teaching have dealt with drama and theatricality in many periods from the Renaissance to the present day, especially including Shakespeare, and especially interested in the relation between theatrical forms and cultural history.
I am also interested, for partly biographical reasons, in the class politics of literary study - two recent-ish articles ('Dialogue and Leisure' and 'Literature Belongs to Gentlemen') are more or less indirectly about that.
Key Research Interests and Expertise
More recently, I have written on the relations between theatrical and fictive space, and on the concept and practice of dialogue, both within drama and as opposed to it. I expect to pursue both these questions further.
