Research Interests

I am interested in anything Shakespearean but my primary research interests focus on the relationship between the drama and social history.

Specifically, I am fascinated by the relationship between words and objects on Shakespeare's stage and how this defines his drama. My work has focused on books, nature and children and how Shakespeare creates his theatrical worlds.

My other areas of interest include, gender, story-telling, education, childhood, the natural world and art.
