Dickson, Vernon Guy Graduate Faculty



  • Dr. Dickson's monograph, Emulation on the Shakespearean Stage, explores theories and practices of imitation and emulation, primarily through their enactment on the English Renaissance stage. He has published articles related to Shakespeare, drama, rhetorical theory, adaptation, exemplarity, and emulation in Renaissance Quarterly, Borrowers and Lenders, Studies in English Literature, and The Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America. His current teaching examines adaptations of Shakespeare, particularly in popular and global cultures, and his current research studies manifestations of agency within analog gaming and their link to Shakespearean representations.
