Brooke Carlson Since earning his Ph.D. from the University of Southern California in 2010, Brooke A. Carlson has taught courses on Shakespeare and Early Modern English Literature, English Literature, World Literature, and American Drama, as well as Composition and Creative Writing at Hansung University and at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies in Seoul, Korea.  Dr. Carlson’s research centers on art, capitalism, class, and the human subject in early modern literature, the stage in particular, and he has published book reviews, encyclopedia entries, and articles on Jonson and Milton.  He will be presenting “A Journeying Shakespeare, or Adjourning Shakespeare:  Making (Foreign) Shakespeare in Seoul,” for the inaugural conference of the Asian Shakespeare Association, to be held in May, in Taipei.  His most recent article, “Sounding Shakespeare’s S(e)oul,” appears as a podcast in “Sounding Out!,” a blog in conjunction with the Journal of Popular Music Studies, and he hopes to do more with sound, and the sounds of paradise, here in Honolulu.
