Jamie Paris is an Assistant Professor of English at Corpus Christi College in Vancouver, and an Instructor in the “Theology and Culture” program at Saint Mark’s College. He graduated in 2016 from University of British Columbia, where he completed a doctoral dissertation entitled Mark this Show: On Dramatic Attention in Christopher Marlowe’s and William Shakespeare’s Tragedies. Paris’s dissertation situates the tragedies of Christopher Marlowe and William Shakespeare within a Reformation religious context and argues that dramatic interest in Marlowe’s and Shakespeare’s plays is generated by staging acts that can be read as ambiguous, interrupted, failed or parodic confessions, prayers, and sermons. His research is interested globally in affect theory, dramatic form and theory, and religious and cultural conversion in early modern England. His present research is thinking about the relationship between race, gender, and the Reformation on the early modern English stage.
