Research Interests:

 My current major research project is a study of passionate male friendship s in the Restoration and early eighteenth century. I am interested, first, in the way the writers of this period draw on and transform the "friendship tradition," a set of idealized precepts that reach back to the Classical age. I also wish to explore the ways in which the idea of passionate male friendship is related to the period's understandings of gender and sexuality. I am currently co-editing an anthology of readings on cultural studies and popular culture and, with Professor Lisa Zeitz of the University of Western Ontario, I am working on an article which examines a number of recent British plays that are rewritings of plays from the Restoration.
