ECR based at UWA. Lover of all things Shakespearean. I work for the ARC Centre for Excellence for the History of Emotions (1100-1800) as its National Administrative Officer. I also work as the Executive Administrator for the Australian and New Zealand Association for Medieval and Early Modern Studies Inc., as the editorial assistant for the academic journal Parergon, and for the Centre for Medieval and Early Modern Studies at The University of Western Australia in both research and administrative roles. My current research project examines popular culture depictions of Richard III, and analyses how these works interpret and visually embody Richard and his disability. My research explores and analyses the clash between Early Modern performance texts and youth culture/popular culture, in particular the appropriation of Shakespeare by youth culture/popular culture and the expropriation of youth culture in the manufacture and marketing of Shakespeare. I have taught courses in Shakespeare, film adaptation, and Australian literature. My doctoral work concerned millennial Shakespearean cinematic adaptations, specifically the intersection of Shakespeare and popular culture, as well as the function of music within these films. As well as the analysis of film versions of Shakespeare, I am also interested in how Shakespeare is adapted in new media, such as music, advertising, television, graphic novels and children’s literature. In particular, I am interested at how Australian authors adapt Shakespeare for children via a variety of forms and genres.

David García is a professor of English at Carthage College, having dedicated the past twenty-five years to the lives of faculty and students as an academic administrator and faculty member. A romanticist by training, he contributed to two manuscript transcription projects (the Cornell Wordsworth and Cornell Yeats series); current interests include the role of faculty in remaking the academy through curricular and pedagogical innovation and of making a case for the humanities in modern society.
I recently completed my doctoral work at the University of Exeter, using a Kittlerian perspective to focus on the treatment of art-objects in fin-de-siècle texts by Michael Field, Vernon Lee, Dante Gabriel Rossetti and Oscar Wilde: Encounters with art-objects in discourse network 1890. I am the UK Administrative Director for NAVSA’s Central Online Victorian Educator (COVE) project, as well as an editor at HARTS&Minds, an interdisciplinary journal based at the University of Bristol.
