Professor Robert Shaughnessy

Robert ShaughnessyBefore joining GSA in 2017 I was Professor of Theatre at the University of Kent; prior to that I held posts at Roehampton University and the University of the West of England.

My work engages with theatre history and contemporary performance, with a particular emphasis on Shakespeare both then and now.
