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. http://crrs.ca/pastevents/early-modern-migrations/
. In conjunction with this conference, I worked closely with Toronto’s 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).
I also co-organized a faculty symposium at the Newberry Library, Chicago:
Symposium on the English and Dutch in the Early Modern World.
