Research

My research focuses on the cross-cultural interconnectedness of literature and culture and explores the intersection of various disciplines, including Renaissance literature, theater and stage history, Renaissance history, anthropology, history of architecture, and art history. Shakespeare's Cross-Cultural Encounters addresses an ethnographic perspective in Shakespeare's dramatic representation of ethnic, racial, religious, and gender issues arising from the encounter of a dominant European society and members of foreign cultures. My book, At Home in Shakespeare's Tragedies, taking a markedly interdisciplinary approach, focuses on representations of home and domestic space in Shakespeare and in early modern Europe and Africa. My recent projects reflect my interest in the discourse of globalization, especially the emerging networks and evolving processes of cross-cultural and commercial exchange in the Renaissance; representation of domestic space; environmental studies; Shakespeare and the Sea; and Ocean Studies. I am currently working on a book on London.
