Research and Creative Activity

Dr. Doty's research focuses on popular politics and the formation of theatrical, literary, and political publics. His work examines how the early modern theater (and Shakespeare's in particular) became a space in which common people learned to analyze politics. He participated in the Making Publics research project and regularly shares work at the meetings of the Shakespeare Association of America. Dr. Doty's work can be found in Shakespeare Quarterly (2010) and English Literary Renaissance (2012). He was awarded a fellowship from the Folger Shakespeare Library in 2010 in support of his book project, "Popularity and Publicity in Shakespeare's Theater."
