Philip Henslowe has, for years, been thought of as a one-dimensional character, whose image has changed, over time, from that of a shady moneylender to a financier to an entrepreneur. In this webinar, Prof Cerasano will discuss a few of the ways in which her research fleshes out and recasts Henslowe's biography beyond this narrow image.
SP Cerasano is the Edgar W.B. Fairchild Professor of Literature at Colgate University in Hamilton, New York and the Editor of Medieval and Renaissance Drama in England. The author of many books and essays on theatre history of the early modern period, she has been working on Henslowe and his son-in-law, Edward Alleyn, for many years.
