Scholarship

I am a PhD student in English in Boston College, with expertise in film studies, early modern English literature (1590-1667), and queer studies.

I am currently at work on a dissertation project in which I theorize a process called “queer adaptation” at work in four instances of networked adaptation. In this project, I consider the queer processes at work in textual and film adaptations of Shakespeare’s Macbeth (and its source texts), Arthur Conan Doyle’s Sherlock Holmes stories/Mark Gatiss’s and Steven Moffat’s Sherlock, Tennessee Williams’ Summer and Smoke/Eccentricities of a Nightingale, and music videos produced by participants in contemporary television fandom.

My other research interests include queerness and sexuality in early modern drama. I have presented papers at the World Shakespeare Congress, the Northeastern MLA Conference, and the Boston College English Graduate Conference.
