Dr Jane Partner

Director of Studies

Having completed a Research Fellowship at Trinity Hall I am now a Fellow-Commoner, College Teaching Associate and Director of Studies in English.

I am also a College Teaching Associate at St John’s College and an Affiliated Lecturer in the Faculty of English.

My teaching and research interests are wide ranging and span the disciplines of English Literature and Art History, concentrating on the early modern and contemporary periods. I am currently working on a book called 'Visualising Shakespeare', which examines how paintings, illustrations, sculpture and diagrams have been used to shape our understanding of Shakespeare’s writing.

I regularly teach the compulsory undergraduate papers that cover 16th- and 17th-century English literature, Shakespeare and Practical Criticism, as well as the final year undergraduate optional papers Literature and Visual Culture, Material Renaissance, Shakespeare in Performance and Early Modern Drama. I also supervise on the History of Art Tripos, particularly the Making of Art paper.
