Amy Borsuk is a Ph.D. candidate and Teaching Associate in Drama at Queen Mary University of London. Her dissertation examines 21st-century London Shakespearean theater as an industry that frames itself artistically and commercially through the value of radicalism, experimentalism or innovation. She uses case studies from (but not limited to) Shakespeare's Globe, the RSC and the Donmar Warehouse to deconstruct these terms and their consequential dialectical tensions between performance and business practice. She has written on the Royal Shakespeare Company's technological performance and business practices in Humanities 8.1 (2019) and is a co-editor and contributor for special issue "Teaching Shakespeare: Digital Processes" in Research in Drama Education (25.1 2020).
