Contribution to discipline

Between 2012 and 2017, I was General Editor of Shakespeare Bulletin, the leading journal in early modern performance studies (http://www.press.jhu.edu/journals/shakespeare_bulletin/). I am still on the journal's editorial board and am furthermore on the editorial boards for Literature Compass and The Hare, as well as for Cambridge University Press' Shakesepeare on Screen and Cambridge Elements: Shakespeare in Performance series. I also review for some of the major presses and journals in the field of Shakespearean and early modern performance studies. In 2011-12, as part of an AHRC-funded research project, I took on the role of Higher Education consultant for Stage on Screen, a London-based production company (see www.stageonscreen.com).

I have contributed to workshops and debates that inform the reconstruction of Inigo Jones' and John Webb's designs for the Cockpit-in-Court as part of the Shakespeare North project in Knowsley and am currently part of a research team that includes Callan Davies at the University of Roehampton and Heather Knight at the Museum of London Archaeology that seeks to explore how Knight's excavation of the Curtain Playhouse shifts received narratives regarding the entertainment culture and architecture of playhouses in Elizabethan and Jacobean London.
