Andrew Bretz received his PhD in 2012 and teaches presently at Wilfrid Laurier University. He has been a postdoctoral researcher with the Canadian Adaptations of Shakespeare Project at the University of Guelph since 2013. He has previously been published in Modern Philology, Notes and Queries, and ESC and has a book chapter in the collection Outerspeares, published by the University of Toronto Press. His recently published chapter on American network radio adaptations of Shakespeare in the 1930s appears in Outerspears (University of Toronto Press, 2014). His edition of A Midsummer Night’s Dream was published in December 2014 by Rocks Mills Press, as a part of their Made in Canada series. He is currently working on a collection of essays on the hit television series Slings and Arrows, which he is co-editing with colleagues from the University of Guelph and St. Francis Xavier University.
The main focus of Bretz's research has always been the representation and construction of gender on the early modern stage and through modern performances of early modern texts. That said, he has recently become more and more interested in the development of the representation of Shakespeare in the Western literary canon.
