Professor Robinson's current book project is titled Impassioned Bodies: Acting and Physical Expression in the Late Georgian Era, and her talk will bring together Romantic-era drama, theories of acting and bodily performance, and the material history of the theatre as a medium. Specifically, Robinson argues that an architectural shift - the installation of mirrors in eighteenth-century playhouses - marked a watershed moment in visual and performance history.
