Professor Vernon Dickson joined Florida International University in the fall of 2007, having recently completed his Ph.D. in English at Arizona State University with a dual focus in Renaissance literature and rhetorical studies. His recent monograph, Emulation on the Shakespearean Stage, explores social and rhetorical theories and practices of imitation and emulation through their enactment on the English Renaissance stage and examines their cultural significance in the often touted age of imitation. Professor Dickson is an active member of the Shakespeare Association of America and the Rhetoric Society of America. He has published articles related to Shakespeare, the Renaissance, rhetorical theory, exemplarity, and emulation in Renaissance Quarterly, Studies in English Literature, and The Papers of the Bibliographical Society of America.
