- My research focuses on Shakespeare, book history, and early modern literary culture. In particular, I am interested in the scrappy, ragged, 'forgotten middlemen of literature', as Robert Darnton has called the denizens of the world of early print, and the influence these individuals had on the intellectual and literary world of the English Renaissance. At the moment, I am researching the figure of the early modern publisher as someone who provided structure and authority to what Robert Burton called a 'vast Chaos and confusion of books'. My other research interests include the history of libraries and of book organisation; the early reception of Shakespeare's writings; the Shakespearean apocrypha; and the writings of Sir Thomas Browne.
