My research often entails collaboration. In 2012, I co-organized an international and interdisciplinary conference, Early Modern Migrations: Exiles, Expulsion, and Religious Refugees 1400-1700
. In conjunction with this conference, I worked closely with the Centre for Drama, Theatre and Performance Studies and Poculi Ludique Societas to produce a full-scale production of Richard Daborne’s A Christian Turn’d Turk (1612).
This coming October, I will be co-chairing a faculty symposium at the Newberry Library, Chicago: Symposium on the English and Dutch in the Early Modern World
