I research early modern theater and literature, and particularly the uses that it makes of psychological and other proto-scientific models from the period. I've written recently on appeals to "experience" in Shakespeare and on atomist poetics in sixteenth-century England; a new article about imagination as a faculty of the soul in A Midsummer Night's Dream will be out in Shakespeare Quarterly in the fall of 2015. At MSU, I teach a lot of Shakespeare, as well as courses in early English drama, graduate-level research, and critical theory.
Early modern drama, literature, and culture; performance and reception studies; history of science, especially physiology, psychology, and atomism; critical theory.
