Bio/Research

Gavin’s primary research interests are centred on Shakespeare and early modern drama. His work on the intersections of editorial practice, textual theory, and performance history has appeared in The Review of English Studies, Shakespeare: The Journal of the British Shakespeare Association, The Bulletin for the Society of Renaissance Studies, Comitatus, The Upstart Crow, and Literature Compass (where he is a three-time winner of Blackwell Publishing’s Essay Prize). His doctoral thesis, Shakespeare and the Imprints of Performance, was awarded the 2008 J. Leeds Barroll Dissertation Prize by the Shakespeare Association of America; this international prize is awarded in recognition of the year’s outstanding dissertation in Shakespeare studies.

In addition to making regular contributions to Routledge’s Annotated Bibliography of English Studies, Gavin is also interested in comic book literature and literary responses to 9/11; his work in these fields has appeared in American Periodicals and The Encyclopedia of Comic Books and Graphic Novels (Greenwood Press)—a project for which he served on the editorial board and contributed several entries.

Gavin’s current research project, Shakespeare and the Archive: Text, Performance, Memory, explores the links between enactments of memory in the theatre and the memorial traces of performances that have long since vanished. Before joining the Arts One faculty, he held a SSHRC Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in the Department of English at Simon Fraser University.
