The Medieval and Early Modern Seminar is welcoming the eminent Shakespeare scholar, Jeremy Lopez of the University of Toronto, on February 17 from 4 to 5:30 p.m. in Schmitt Hall room 104.
Jeremy Lopez teaches and writes about the drama of Shakespeare and his contemporaries. His most recent book is Constructing the Canon of Early Modern Drama (Cambridge 2014), a history of the early modern dramatic canon from the eighteenth century to the present. He is the general editor of the Routledge Anthology of Early Modern Drama (forthcoming 2019), which will be the first entirely revisionary anthology of its kind in over a century. Other current work in progress includes a monograph on the intersection of biography, biographical criticism, and dramatic form in the study of early modern drama.
