Shakespearean Surfaces: Reading, Writing and Performing Superficiality in Sixteenth-Century England.

Project: Non-funded ProjectProjects

1/08/08 → …

In 2008, this project began by focussing on Tudor drama's use of 'skin' as a means of initiating relationships between 'the visual and the haptic' (Benthien, 2002: 10). Since then, research by Patricia Cahill, Katherine A. Craik, Elizabeth Harvey, Tanya Pollard and Bruce R. Smith has advanced phenomenal approaches to cutaneous and material surfaces. Accordingly, and developing the work that I have carried out on Shakespearean Surfaces and Surface Studies thus far, my book-length project extends its interest from skin to wider concepts of superficiality in sixteenth-century England.
