Here’s the fifth in our series of Plenary Profiles. Meet Patrick Gray, who’s tackled many subjects in his work, including psychology, philosophy, and vampires.
Patrick Gray is Lecturer in Shakespeare and Renaissance Literature in the Department of English Studies at Durham University. He is the co-editor with John D. Cox of Shakespeare and Renaissance Ethics (Cambridge UP, 2014) and currently co-editing a further collection of essays on Shakespeare and Montaigne with Lars Engle and Will Hamlin, as well as a special issue of Critical Survey on Shakespeare and war. His essays have appeared or are forthcoming in Shakespeare Survey, Shakespeare-Jahrbuch, Critical Survey, Comparative Drama, and Cahiers Shakespeare en devenir.
In the spring of 2016 he will be Early Career International Research Fellow at the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for the History of Emotions, 1100-1800, where he will be working on his monograph, Shame and Guilt in Shakespeare, and organizing a symposium on the early modern reception of Hellenistic ethics, together with Peter Holbrook and Ada Palmer.
Before taking up his appointment at Durham, he taught Shakespeare and comparative literature at Providence College, Deep Springs College, and the United States Military Academy at West Point.
