Misha Teramura is Assistant Professor of English at the University of Toronto, where he researches and teaches the literature of the English Renaissance. His work has appeared in such journals as ELH, Shakespeare Quarterly, Modern Philology, English Literary Renaissance, RES, Early Theatre, and The Chaucer Review, as well as in the edited collections Lost Plays in Shakespeare’s England and Loss and the Literary Culture of Shakespeare’s Time. He is currently completing a book titled Shakespeare and Chaucer: Literary Authority on the Renaissance Stage, which argues that Shakespeare's adaptations of Chaucer explore the increasingly amphibious status of early modern plays as both theatrical performances on stage and texts to be read on the page. He is also editing Henry IV, Part 2 for the Arden Shakespeare Fourth Series. Other current research interests include manuscript drama, textual scholarship, classical reception, and the circle of Henry Percy, ninth earl of Northumberland. He is also a co-editor of the Lost Plays Database with Roslyn L. Knutson (emerita), David McInnis, and Matthew Steggle.
Misha received his PhD in English from Harvard University after completing his undergraduate work at the University of Toronto. He taught at Reed College in Portland, OR for two years before returning to UofT.
