New Plenary Speaker: Dr. Abigail Rokison-Woodall

This week we have a familiar face to add to our list of plenary speakers! It gives us great pleasure to announce Dr Abigail Rokison-Woodall will be speaking at this year’s BritGrad conference. After lecturing at Cambridge University for seven years, Abigail is now a senior lecturer in Shakespeare and Theatre and the Shakespeare and Creativity.


Abigail began her career as a professional actor before moving into academia to pursue research interests in Shakespeare in performance. Her particular research areas include verse speaking, adaptation and theatre history. Her most recent publication documents the career of Nicholas Hytner for Arden Bloomsbury.

Abigail is also working with Arden Bloomsbury as a General Editor of the new Arden Shakespeare in Performance Editions, for which series she is editing A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Hamlet. We are very excited for Abigail to join the conference as a plenary speaker.
