Jennifer's research focuses on early modern performance studies and appropriations of ‘Shakespeare’ on stage and screen from the Restoration period through to contemporary performance. She is particularly interested in the cinematic adaptation of early modern drama and in theories of stardom and celebrity. This informs her current work on the concept of Shakespearean stardom. Other research interests include the relationship between performance and the archive, the intersection of film and autobiography and overlaps between early modern medical discourses and ideas about acting.
