Danielle Rosvally is a clinical assistant professor of theatre. She holds a PhD from Tufts University where she studied in the department of dance and drama. Her research involves the intersection between nineteenth century American businessmen, economy, and William Shakespeare as an examination of theatrical business and American theatre performance. Her work has a heavy digital bent, using digital methodologies to examine and explore historical phenomena as well as examining digital media itself.

As an actor, Danielle has trained with the American Globe Theatre, The Actor’s Institute, the Royal Shakespeare Company, and Shakespeare & Company. She is also a professionally-trained fight director with over ten years of experience in the industry, having spent the last several years choreographing violence for Boston theatres.

Danielle’s work has recently been seen in print in The Fight Master magazine (Reading Romeo: A Research Guide to Romeo and Juliet); Shaping Shakespeare for Performance: The Bear Stage (“Off With His Head! (so much for Hewlett/Brown)”; Eds. Sid Ray and Catherine Loomis, Farleigh Dickinson University Press); and The Shakespeare User: Critical and Creative Appropriations in a Networked Culture (“The Haunted Network: Shakespeare’s Digital Ghost”; Eds. Louise Geddes and Valerie Fazel; Palgrave).  She works as project coordinator with the Folger Shakespeare Library, assisting the digital division with projects such as Folgerpedia, Early Modern Manuscripts Online, BardMetrics, and the Elizabethan Court Day by Day.
