The MLA office asked candidates for election to a forum’s executive committee to post here.
Hi, everyone! My name is Alexa, and I teach Shakespeare, race, and gender in the Department of English in George Washington University. I would like to introduce myself.
I chaired the MLA committee on the New Variorum Edition of Shakespeare and served on several other committees. I have been a regular participants in MLA conventions. I would be honored to contribute to the MLA forum on Shakespeare by helping with administrative tasks and organizing panels that speak to members’ interests.
In my research, I have brought race, gender, and global studies to bear on the significance of Shakespeare. My book, Shakespeare and East Asiais forthcoming from Oxford University Press in January 2021, and I am currently working on the history of transgender performances of Shakespeare. In 2019, I publish, with Martin Orkin, a book entitled Race(Roultedge New Critical Idiom series). My co-edited book, Local and Global Myths in Shakespearean Performance (2018), examines local and global myths that have been constructed around Shakespeare in theatre, cinema, and television from the nineteenth century to the present.
I look forward to working with you on the Forum.
