I am a doctoral researcher at the Shakespeare Institute, University of Birmingham, and my research is funded by the Midlands4Cities Doctoral Training Partnership.
In 2016-2019, for my undergraduate degree, I read English Literature at Durham University. My undergraduate dissertation, entitled 'Gospel and Genre: The Christ Narrative in Shakespearean Drama', examined the changing role of the gospel narrative across Shakespeare's tragedies, comedies, and late romances.
In 2019-2020, I completed a Master's degree in Shakespeare Studies at the Shakespeare Institute. I graduated with a Distinction and was awarded the Sir Stanley Wells prize for outstanding scholarly work in my dissertation. My dissertation, entitled '"Remember Me": Religious Reform, Revenge Politics, and the Denial of Death in The Spanish Tragedy, Titus Andronicus, and Hamlet', considered how changing doctrinal attitudes towards the dead were reflected in Renaissance revenge drama and argued that revenge essentially functions as an act of remembrance, performed in defiance of Reformed Protestant eschatology.
My PhD thesis develops the research of my MA dissertation and examines how Renaissance dramatists depicted post-Reformation eschatology and secularised quests for post-mortem fame.
