Richard Schoch is a historian whose research encompasses theatre historiography, Shakespeare in performance, and cultural history. He is currently leading the AHRC-funded project Performing Restoration Shakespeare (2017-2019), a practice-based research project run in partnership with Shakespeare's Globe, The Folger Shakespeare Library (USA) and the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust. He recently held a Leverhulme Major Research Fellowship (2011-2014), during which wrote Writing the History of the British Stage, 1660-1900. Published by Cambridge University Press in September 2016, it is the first monograph on British theatre historiography. He is also a Contributing Editor of the new Cengage Shakespeare (2017), for which he will write the critical introduction on the history of Shakespeare in performance. He has also written popular history of Shakespeare’s birthplace in Stratford-upon-Avon, entitled Shakespeare's House. In conjunction with his AHRC research project, he will be co-authoring, with the musicologist Amanda Eubanks Winkler, a monograph on Restoration Shakespeare for Arden Shakespeare (Bloomsbury).
