Professor Tony Howard is Emeritus Professor, and taught on the English and Comparative Literary Studies program.

Research interests

I publish on performance in its social and political contexts, primarily Shakespeare in performance on stage and in the mass media; contemporary British drama; and East European poetry and theatre. My research currently focuses on the relationship between race and Shakespeare in modern Britain; the AHRC-funded Multicultural Shakespeare Project is gathering information on the achievements of black and Asian artists working on the plays in Britain since Paul Robeson played Othello in London in 1930. With Barbara Bogoczek I work on Polish poetry and drama, for example translating lyrics for the composer Zbigniew Preisner. Their work on the poet Maria Pawlikowska-Jasnorzewska is featured here:
