I am an Associate Professor in the Department of English at the University of Victoria, Director of The Map of Early Modern London project, and Coordinating Editor of the Internet Shakespeare Editions. I took an Honours English degree at UVic (with a minor in French), and an MA and PhD in Renaissance Drama at Queen’s University. I’ve taught at the Summer Academy at the Stratford Festival and the University of Windsor. I’m currently working on an edition of The Merchant of Venice for ISE/Broadview (with Stephen Wittek), coordinating a large team at the ISE, and lecturing occasionally on my research (London Studies, Digital Scholarship, and Textual Editing).
I regularly teach the graduate course in “Textual Studies and Methods of Research” and undergraduate courses on Shakespeare and English Renaissance Drama. Research and teaching interests include representations of early modern London, textual criticism, digital scholarship, text encoding, editorial theory, mapping, Shakespeare in Canada, adaptation, editorial theory, and academic career development.
I am also the mother of two school-aged boys, a certified MBTI practitioner, a keen gardener, an enthusiastic explorer of the Salish Sea, an inhabitant in the Garry Oak ecosystem, a motorcycle rider, and a singer.
