Other Interests / Recent Undertakings:

My current book–in–progress is about the relationship between Shakespearean drama and the post–Reformation English Protestant ministry.

After completing a doctoral dissertation on representations of taverns and alehouses, I continue to be very interested in how early–modern urban spaces – especially London`s – and their associated practices figure in political history, particularly in terms of the development of civility and the public sphere.

I am a member of the editorial board of the Map of Early Modern London Project, based at the University of Victoria. I am an active participant in the Group for Pre-Modern Studies, as well as a participant in the Circle of Medieval and Early Modern Scholars of Manitoba.
