Shakespeare, English Renaissance Drama, Ethics, Aristotle, Philosophy

I specialize in Shakespeare, ethics, and the reception of classical philosophy in the early modern era. My particular interests are in Aristotelianism (in all its variety) and moral philosophy (across various traditions). I’m especially fascinated by the ways classical philosophy finds unique expression on the popular stage — and by the ethical valences these kinds of appropriations hold. My current project, tentatively titled Shakespeare and the Communal Ethics of Intention, examines the ethical demands the unknowable intentions of others put on moral agents in Shakespearean drama.
