My research interests are in Shakespeare studies in all its many facets, from texts to stage to film.


My particular research interest lies in the editing of Shakespeare's texts and in the problems raised by modern editions. I also maintain a long-standing interest in the teaching of Shakespeare and in the student experience.


I took my BA and PhD at Nottingham. I joined Cardiff University in 1973 and quickly became involved in student welfare and practices of teaching.

With my colleague Dr John Peck I undertook the editing over twenty years of a series of books for Palgrave Macmillan, including the New Casebooks series, as well as publications designed to improve student writing.
