Research Pitch I have a longstanding interest in literary tragedy, both in its central instances and in its inflections during cultural periods nominally hostile to or historically unrelated to it. In my doctoral research, I examine language phenotypes and literary representations related to action, the causation of and attribution of responsibility for action, intention, and individuation in Ancient Greek tragedy and the texts of the late Medieval Japanese poetic dramatist, Zeami. I am particularly interested in how such phenotypes, or language markers, derived from or were associated with contemporary legal concepts and practises.
