academic humanities, whose work focused on theater history

Jane Moody, who died of cancer within 44 years, was director of York University Humanities Research Center. He was a pioneering scholar of the theater on 18th and 19th century and a passionate defender of the humanities, both inside and outside the university.

He joined the Department of English literature and related to York in 1997, was appointed to a professorship in 2004, and research chair of the department, took his 2008 presentation to the research evaluation. First place in the department in the UK is due largely to the strategic intelligence of Jane and her gift to help others make the most of your research.

His own research provides dramatic new perspectives in the literature 18 and 19 century. His publications include The Cambridge Companion to British Theatre, 1730-1830 (2007) and the illegitimate theater in London, 1770-1840 (2000). Writes Jane has played an important role in manufacturing and Victorian romantic drama (with tip playwrights and stage without a license), the subject of legitimate historical research.

She helped bridge the gap between the old elite and popular culture, and more recently between literary criticism and performance studies, and she helped us to understand how in a strange way as pantomime ("British as a good curry in India") could find such a central place in the national consciousness. She has also written about the history of censorship, the politics of celebrity and the relationship between culture and commerce, and has had international scholarships of the Huntington Library in San Marino, California, and the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington DC. She was researching a new book on Byron before his death.

The eldest daughter of David and Sue Jane Moody was born in Barnsley, South Yorkshire, and studied in Hall Green Primary School and Wakefield High School for girls. He was a student at St. Edmund Hall, Oxford and counseling women at Oriel College, Oxford, before being appointed to a fellowship at Girton College, Cambridge.

In June this year, he co-directed the first Festival of Ideas of York, whose principal founder was the development of strong links between the university and the city and explore the links between the past and present. It brought together a number of speakers world-class exhibitions and shows and drew more than 8,000 people over 20 events. She was a valued member of the Peer Review College of Arts and Humanities Research Council, and served on the Board of Directors of the Foundation Wakefield High School.

Jane all the qualities were exhibited in November 2010, when he was a full house for the first event of the Merchant Adventurers' discovery of the arts in York, Berwick Kaler Pantomime before, which featured a vintage performance Kaler over 30 years of the writer, director and star of the annual pantomime at York Theatre Royal.
