Mauricio Martinez is a second-year PhD student in Literary/Theatre Studies in English at the University of Guelph. His dissertation explores aspects of mourning in Shakespearean tragedy, but his other scholarly interests include discourses of slavery and abolition in late eighteenth-century literature, law and literature, and popular culture. Mauricio also has a multi-media background stemming from his time in the Creative Communications Program at Red River College in Winnipeg, and his interests in this area include visual/graphic design, photography, and experimental documentary.

...the innovative working models of improvisation developed by creative practitioners have helped to promote a dynamic exchange of cultural forms, and to encourage new, socially responsive forms of community building across national, cultural, and artistic boundaries.
