I teach courses on Shakespeare and other early modern English writers at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst. There are links above to my CV, to a page about books I’ve written or written for, and to my less-than-academic musical endeavors.
Recent news: I am a contributor to a new collection of essays and conversational responses edited by Subha Mukherji, Blindspots of Knowledge in Shakespeare and his World. My essay on Love’s Labour’s Lost was chosen by Peter Holland, retiring editor of Shakespeare Survey, as his favorite of 2017 in an open-access collection he put together that spans the 19 years of his work for that journal.
Upcoming events: At RSA, I will be participating in a session celebrating the 50th Anniversary of English Literary Renaissance.
New essays forthcoming in Martin Butler and Jane Rickard, eds. Ben Jonson and Posterity: Reputation, Reception, Legacy (Cambridge University Press); and Rebecca Tomlin and Subha Mukherji, eds., Change and Exchange: Literature and Economics in Early Modern England (Palgrave Macmillan). I am also a contributor to two forthcoming Oxford Handbooks: one on Thomas Nashe, and one on Early Modern Poetry. Other works in progress include a monograph tentatively titled Shakespeare Unlearned: Nonsense, Pedantry, and the Poetics of Assessment, and a new edition of Love’s Labour’s Lost, under contract for the Arden Shakespeare 4th series.
I am currently an Editor of English Literary Renaissance.
A few of my published essays are available on my ScholarWorks page.
