Bio


Ivan Lupić specializes in Shakespeare and early modern English literature. His current book project is entitled "Subjects of Advice: Drama and Counsel from More to Shakespeare." Research interests include: European Renaissance; literature and political thought; textual scholarship, book history, and manuscript studies; theater history; history of the discipline; translation studies; queer studies; new boredom. His work has appeared in collections such as The Quest for Cardenio: Shakespeare, Fletcher, and the Lost Play (OUP, 2012), Postcolonial Shakespeare (Edizioni di storia e letteratura, 2009), Shakespeare and War (Palgrave Macmillan, 2008), and Shakespeare in Europe (Jagiellonian UP, 2008). His first Croatian book, devoted to Renaissance sonnet sequences and the issue of transtextuality, appeared in 2007; his second Croatian book, on the relationship between book history and performance studies in foreign-Shakespeare contexts, appeared in 2010. He also writes on the manuscript culture of the Ragusan Republic and is contemplating a book in English on the place of the Ragusan Renaissance within the European literary system.
