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, English Literary Renaissance, RES, Early Theatre, and The Chaucer Review, as well as in the edited collection Lost Plays in Shakespeare’s England. 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. Other current research interests include the lost plays of the Renaissance, manuscript drama, textual scholarship, classical reception, and the circle of Henry Percy, ninth earl of Northumberland.
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.
