research overview

  • I teach undergraduate and graduate courses in theatre history and dramatic literature, primarily in the modern era (post-1800). I also teach a dramatic theory and criticism course. I study theater and performance in relation to U.S. copyright law. I am developing courses in disability studies, taught primarily through the Humanities program. I have developed/directed plays with adults with developmental disabilities. I also write plays, a few of which have been produced.
