MemberCaleb Andrew Milligan

I am a Doctoral Candidate and Graduate Teacher of Record in the Department of English at the University of Florida, specializing in comparative media studies, digital humanities, and embodied rhetorics. I teach, research, and publish broadly across intersections between literature, film, and digital media. My current research project, Post-Digital Touch: Writing Embodiments, Affective Interfaces, and Haptic Media, builds from my published and forthcoming work to account for the importance of touch to textual encounters in an age of ubiquitous computing devices which change the ways we compose our media and our bodily selves. In addition to my research agenda and teaching record, I am a 2016-2018 HASTAC scholar, founding member of the TRACE Innovation Initiative, and coordinator of interdisciplinary digital humanities conferences and workshops at UF.

(Spanish below) I am a feminist film historian with a focus on the Andes (Peru and Bolivia). More than the movies themselves, I am interested in the processes that allow them to live, so I research the whole life cycle of the films, from their ideation to their reception. I advocate a non-hierarchical, non-authoritarian and non-patriarchal approach to the study of social, political, precarious and collaborative cinema, which is why I consider that management, circulation, reception and archiving are activities that should be investigated systematically. Soy una historiadora feminista del cine hecho en los Andes (Perú y Bolivia). Más que las películas en sí, me interesan los procesos que permiten que éstas vivan, por ello investigo todo el ciclo de vida de los filmes, desde su ideación hasta su recepción.  Abogo por una aproximación no jerárquica, no autorista y no patriarcal al estudio del cine social, político, precario y colaborativo por ello considero que la gestión, la circulación, la recepción y el archivo son actividades que deben ser investigadas sistemáticamente.

I am a Professor of Music History and Cultures and Chair of the Department of Art and Music Histories at Syracuse University. I also serve on the Core Faculty of the Goldring Arts Journalism Program and I am a faculty affiliate in Women and Gender Studies and the Medieval and Renaissance Studies Program.   My research focuses on English theatre music of the seventeenth, eighteenth, and twentieth centuries. I am the Co-Investigator on Performing Restoration Shakespeare, a project funded by the Arts & Humanities Research Council, UK (2017-2020) and am a General Editor for The Collected Works of John Eccles (A-R Editions). I have published on a range of topics, including the relationships among musical, spiritual, and bodily disorder; musical depictions of the goddess Venus; the gendering of musical spirits; and the intersection of music and politics. More recent work has engaged with performance studies and practice-based research, including workshops that staged excerpts of Davenant’s Macbeth and Gildon’s Measure for Measure (Folger Theatre, Washington DC) and Middleton’s The Witch (Blackfriars Conference, Staunton, VA). As part of the Performing Restoration Shakespeare project, I served as music director for a workshop of the Restoration-era Tempest (Sam Wanamaker Playhouse, Shakespeare’s Globe, London) and more recently I co-led a workshop for scholars and served as a consultant for a full professional production of Davenant’s Macbeth, staged at the Folger Theatre, Washington DC. My most recent book, Music, Dance, and Drama in Early Modern English Schoolsappeared with Cambridge University Press in 2020. Shakespeare in Performance: Sir William Davenant and the Duke’s Company, co-authored with Richard Schoch, is forthcoming with Arden Shakespeare/Bloomsbury in 2021. My next project is a book that situates Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musicals from the 70s and 80s within a social and political context.
