Biography

John Gillies joined the Department in January 2001. He lectured at the Shakespeare Institute, Macquarie University, The Australian National University, and LaTrobe University, before taking up an Australian Research Council Fellowship. He actively explores multimedia for pedagogical and research purposes. He has co-authored two multimedia packages: 'Shakespeare in Japan: Deguchi Norio', and 'Performing Shakespeare in China. 1980-90'. The first of these is currently on the LaTrobe University web site, the second is currently in further production with his co-author, Ruru Li.

In addition to various articles and book chapters, he is the author of Shakespeare and the Geography of Difference(1994); co-editor (with Virginia Mason Vaughan) of Playing the Globe: Genre and Geography in English Renaissance Drama (1998); and co-editor (with Ryuta Minami and Ian Carruthers) of Performing Shakespeare in Japan (2001).
