Mark is Senior Lecturer in the English Programme in the School of Arts, where he teaches Shakespeare and his Contemporaries, and Literary Theory. He has a special interest in the place of Shakespeare in New Zealand, and the use of adaptations and appropriations in Shakespeare performance, and has published numerous groundbreaking essays on these subjects. Currently he is editing "Twelfth Night" for the Internet Shakespeare Editions (ise.uvic.ca); when completed this will appear live and free to air; a version of this text has also just been published (2014) in the Broadview/Internet Shakespeare Series (Peterborough, Ontario: Broadview). Last year he co-edited a collection of essays, "Shakespeare and Emotions: Histories, Re-enactments, Legacies" (Palgrave MacMillan). As current President of the Australia and New Zealand Shakespeare Association he is anticipating a busy 2016 contributing to the celebrations for the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare's death, April 23, 1616.
