PhD projects

Martin Wiggins' research interests cover the full corpus of dramatic works written in the British Isles between the English Reformation and the English Revolution, including both commercial and literary plays, masques and entertainments, and drama in Latin, Greek, Cornish and Welsh. He is compiling a comprehensive chronological catalogue of this material for Oxford University Press, and is also writing books on Shakespeare’s Jacobean tragedies, and on drama and the transfer of power in Renaissance England. He is a member of the editorial team working on the AHRC-funded Oxford edition of The Complete Works of John Ford. In 2006, he won the Calvin and Rose G Hoffman Prize for distinguished work on Christopher Marlowe. He also writes regularly for the magazine Around the Globe on issues in dramatic history.

Dr Wiggins supervises postgraduate research relating to any of the interests listed above, and on dramatic works written by ‘British’ authors overseas between the English Reformation and the English Revolution.
