Shakespeare and Counterinsurgent Performance, book manuscript (in progress): Shakespeare and Counterinsurgent Performance examines Shakespeare’s role in American arts, educational, and military initiatives during two historical moments—the 1960s and the present, during the Cold War and during the Global War on Terror. The project moves between three domains of performance: theatrical performance, military performance, and scholastic performance. My project concerns itself equally with literary, theatrical, filmic and digital technologies, looking at how each helps us materially and figuratively remediate, record, overdub, imprint, and choreograph Shakespeare for new audiences. It also examines analogous processes in the early modern world. This framework entails a series of interlocking, close, rhetorical readings of particular performances, intermedial technologies, arts/educational legislation, and the institutional discourses accompanying each.
