Research Statement

Under the supervision of Prof. Mark Thornton Burnett (PI), Dr. Rosa García Periago will examine for the first time the role of Shakespeare in Indian cinemas with a focus on gender. Integrally important to her fellowship’s recovery mission is the centrality of women not only as subjects of representation but also as filmmakers and creative practitioners. 

One of the research outputs of the Marie Curie project (Shakespeare and Indian Cinematic Traditions) is the creation of a database of the hundreds of Shakespeare films in India, including films that adapt major Shakespearean plays or substantially cite Shakespearean plays. The objective is to assemble a comprehensive and representative list of examples that reflects the depth and diversity of the place of Shakespeare in Indian cinematic traditions. The database consists of various sections, including a film-bibliography and availability of the movies.

Research Interests

My research interests are film adaptations of Shakespeare's works, especially in India.


In late October 2019 I am co-chairing the conference Women and Indian Shakespeares at Queen's University Belfast along with Dr. Thea Buckley.
