John H. Muse

John H. Muse is assistant professor in English and Theater and Performance Studies at University of Chicago. Professor Muse's research explores work that tests the perceived boundaries of media: plays that resemble visual art, poems or novels in dramatic form, metatheater, and digital, impossible, or otherwise virtual theater. His first book, Microdramas: Crucibles for Theater and Time, explores brevity in theater since the late nineteenth century and argues that very short plays reveal fundamental assumptions about theater’s limits and possibilities. He has published in Theater Journal, Modern Drama, Theater, and The Journal of Dramatic Theory and Criticism, among other venues.
