About

Hallie Marshall, BA (Queen’s University), MA (Memorial University), PhD (UBC), specializes in dramatic literature and theatre history, with a particular focus on ancient Greek theatre and its reception (reuse) in later periods. Her doctoral dissertation was on the classical plays of British poet Tony Harrison. She has published on Aristophanes, Tony Harrison, Ted Hughes, Sarah Kane, and the performance of ancient Greek theatre in Canada. Her current projects include a comparative study of the ancient City Dionysia and the contemporary Cook Islands’ festival Te Maeva Nui. She has recently completed a short film of the “Ode to Man” from Sophocles’ Antigone with her 2018 Go Global students and the UK-based company Barefaced Greek. They are currently collaborating on another SSHRC-funded film—the Dawn chorus from Euripides’ fragmentary tragedy Phaethon—to be filmed as part of the Go Global 2021 summer program.
