Life After Ertegun House

Since completing my MSt, I have begun an AHRC-funded DPhil here at the University of Oxford. I am pursuing my interest in early modern dramatic genre, exploring generic playfulness and experimentation in plays written and performed in the early years of the professional London theatres.

Alongside my research, I am also a part-time assistant for the Oxford-based charity ReLit, which promotes the therapeutic use of slow reading in the management of stress, anxiety, and other mental health conditions. My work for the charity includes updating the website and social media accounts, and helping to organise workshops and an annual Summer School.

As an active member of the Ertegun community still based in Oxford, I am very happy to be contacted by other scholars and alumni, as well as by prospective applicants.
