Fall 2012 Distinguished Faculty Lecture Series: “Drafting Shakespeare: Going to Warm, Armed with the Bard”

The 42nd Hofstra University Distinguished Faculty Lecture will be presented by Vimala Pasupathi of the Department of English in the Hofstra College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.  Professor Pasupathi’s lecture is titled, “Drafting Shakespeare:Going to War, Armed with the Bard.”


Professor Pasupathi received a B.A. in English from Ohio Wesleyan University, an M.A. in English literature from The Ohio State University and a Ph.D. from The University of Texas at Austin. While at UT-Austin, she held the W.S. Livingston Fellowship and served for two years as the assistant director of lower-division writing. Professor Pasupathi joined the Hofstra University faculty in 2006 as an assistant professor in the English Department. She teaches courses in early British literature as well as Shakespeare and other early modern dramatists at both the undergraduate and graduate levels.


Dr. Pasupathi’s research interests in 16th- and 17th-century literature and culture are broad and varied, ranging from the history of horse racing and Scottish national identity to print culture and military affairs. Her scholarship on these and other topics appears in leading journals in the field, including Modern Philology, English Literary History, Early Theatre, and the British journal Shakespeare. She has also written several essays for edited collections, most recently for Celtic Shakespeare: The Bard and the Borderers (Ashgate, 2012) and a book on Cardenio, a now-lost play believed to be partly the work of Shakespeare and his final collaboration with John Fletcher (Palgrave, 2013).


She is currently working on two book projects. The first is a textbook of English writing on Ireland, covering the period from 1500 to 1700. The second is a monograph that constructs the pre-history of the British Army by focusing on the development of the militia in early modern British culture and English drama.
