AboutI teach in the English Department at the American University of Sharjah in the UAE. My research concerns the political dynamics of performance, especially but not only Shakespeare performance. I am currently writing about the philosophical concept of potentiality through The Method Gun by Kirk Lynn and the Austin, TX-based Rude Mechs.
