After undergraduate work at the University of Southampton and her MA and PhD from The Shakespeare Institute of the University of Birmingham, Dr Snow first came to Harlaxton in the early 1990s. She took an active role in the early years of the British Studies course, particularly in developing its interdisciplinary approach. She led the teaching team for two years in addition to teaching Shakespeare and other literature courses.
In 2006, after five years teaching Shakespeare and other arts courses with The Open University, Dr Snow returned to Harlaxton to teach British Studies and, of course, Shakespeare. Her publications and research interests focus on Shakespeare in performance, gender and Shakespeare, and the ways in which perceptions and presentations of Shakespeare and heritage contribute to ideas of national identity. Dr Snow is the convenor of “The Harlaxton Players”, and she and her two musical daughters are keen members of The Harlaxton Collegiate Choir.
Dr Snow is on leave during the Spring Semester 2013.
