Research Interests / Recherches

Maria Shmygol received her doctorate from the University of Liverpool, with a thesis entitled ‘‘A Sea-Change’: Representations of the Marine in Jacobean Drama and Visual Culture’. She also holds an MA in Renaissance and Eighteenth-Century Literature (2010) and a BA in English Language and Literature (2009) from the University of Liverpool. She has previously taught at her alma mater, where she also worked as a research assistant for the Oxford Hakluyt Project, and, more recently, at the University of Sussex. Her research interests include early modern drama, textual editing and print culture, as well as material and visual culture more broadly. Her current project is an edition of William Percy’s underwater play, The Aphrodysial (1602), and, with Professor Lukas Erne, a translation and edition of the 1620 German adaptation of Titus Andronicus.
