My main areas of research interests are Shakespeare and its Afterlife, in Text and Performance. Shakespeare and Text As an editor and a textual scholar, I focus primarily on English printed drama to the Restoration (including Shakespeare). I have prepared editions of Shakespeare and his contemporaries and I am currently editing John Ford's ''Tis Pity She's a Whore' for the Arden Early Modern Drama series. My recent book on 'Shakespeare and the Rise of the Editor' (Cambridge University Press, 2007) provides the first sustained history of the evolution of Shakespeare's texts in print prior to the rise of the official editorial tradition, marked by the publication of Nicholas Rowe's edition of Shakespeare's 'Complete Works' in 1709. I welcome applications from prospective students who wish to prepare critical editions of early modern literary works or to explore the interrelation between theatrical and print cultures in early modern London. I also welcome applications from students planning to work on Renaissance paratexts, a growing area of interest in early modern textual studies and the topic of one of my current project, a new edition of The Dramatic Paratext in English printed drama to the Restoration (Cambridge University Press, 2009), which I am currently preparing with Professor Thomas L. Berger (St. Lawrence University, Canton NY). Shakespeare and Performance I am interested in adaptations of Shakespeare's works for different media and in different languages. I have written extensively on Shakespearean adaptations ranging from the Restoration to the present. I also edited and contributed to a collection of essays on 'World-Wide Shakespeares' (Routledge, 2005) and I am particularly interested in the role played by local / global Shakespeares within different communities (artists, scholars, students). I would be happy to consider applications from students who wish to carry out postgraduate work at M.Phil or PhD level on any aspect of the afterlife of Shakespeare in different periods (from the Restoration to the present), in different media (theatre, cinema, prose fiction, etc.), and in different languages (provided that the prospective applicant is fluent in at least another relevant language besides English).
