About

In 2012, the University of Guelph awarded Andrew his doctorate in English and Theatre Studies, where his dissertation was on the subject of the representation of rape on the early modern stage.  His master’s work at the University of Calgary focused on how early modern playwrights dealt with the subject of prostitution.  He has previously been published in Modern Philology and Interdisciplinary Humanities. He has a book chapter in the collection Outerspeares, published by the University of Toronto Press, and has edited several editions of the Rocks’ Mills Press Shakespeare: Made in Canada Series, under Daniel Fischlin. His introduction to A Midsummer Night’s Dream was published in 2015. Andrew has taught courses in the history of Western civilization, poetry, modern drama, as well as Shakespeare and his contemporaries at the University of Guelph, University of Calgary, McMaster University, Wilfrid Laurier University and The Stratford Festival.

Andrew has presented previously at the Shakespeare Association of America, Renaissance Society of America, the Pacific Northwest Renaissance Society, the Society for Teaching and Learning in Higher Education and is a regular participant in the Digital Humanities Summer Institute at the University of Victoria.  Previously, Andrew has worked as dramaturg for The Shakespeare Company of Calgary, Alberta and dramaturged the first production of The Humorous Magistrate (Marriage Upon Marriage), a previously undiscovered, anonymous play manuscript dated to approximately 1630-50 from northern England.  Though early modern drama is his primary area of interest, Andrew is deeply interested in 20th and 21st century mediations of early modern texts in audio formats such as the appropriations of Shakespeare on early American radio from 1925-40.
