My work draws on adaptation and performance studies, as well as critical race and postcolonial theories, to understand the role that monuments and statues play in early modern European drama. My secondary interests in the racialization of space & spatialization of race, the history of playhouses in the united states, and the political role of ‘public’ Shakespeares. At the heart of my intellectual interests is my own political work with (and in solidarity with) transnational movements to oppose, remove, and dismantle those seemingly idle idols that memorialize white supremacy and Euro-colonial conquest.
