Dr. Robinson has published on the history plays of Shakespeare, and on John Foxe and Reformation historiography and the Foxean history play. My current research is on Shakespeare’s representation of religious controversy. In 2014, she joined other scholars in celebrating Shakespeare’s 450th birthday by attending a conference on “Shakespeare and the Problem of Biography” at the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C.
