The April 2014 issue of the Yale Graduate School of Arts and Sciences Newsletter features a profile article about me and my research. Among other things, it describes some of the work I have been doing on early modern playbooks and the practice of “stab-stitching,” work that forms the first chapter of my dissertation. The piece provides a very brief account of just what “stab-stitching” is and how my research reevaluates its significance to our understanding of the history of drama as a literary form. There is also some discussion of my book collecting and its impact on my academic research. You can find the article here: “Don’t Judge a Book by Its (Lack of a) Cover”.
