Scholarly Interests
My work traces the ways in which the popular culture of the Renaissance both reflects and is embedded in the larger political, economic, and social contexts. For instance, the impact of Early Modern technologies of warfare is explored in Shakespeare's plays that draw analogies between the English present and the ancient and medieval past.

Presentations
