Current & Future Research:

​My current book-length project, provisionally entitled “Imaginary Anatomy: Effigeal Bodies in Early Modern and Modern Culture,” is a cultural-historical investigation of the effigy and effigeal corporeality in early modern and modern culture, from Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale through to twentieth-century horror films.


​I have published articles in the journals Medieval and Renaissance Drama in England, Criticism, American Imago, Essays in Theatre, and Word & Image. My monograph, Stages of Dismemberment: The Fragmented Body in Late Medieval and Early Modern Drama (University of Delaware Press, 2005), concentrates on theatrical representations of dismemberment and decapitation, examining the reconfiguration of corporeal semiotics in the wake of the Protestant Reformation.
