Inspire Tutor - Professor Margaret Rogerson

Margaret Rogerson retired as an Associate Professor in the Department of English at the University of Sydney at the end of 2012 and is now an honorary associate the university. In her early career she wrote on the medieval production of the York Mystery Plays and her publications included Records of Early English Drama: York, a collection of civic and guild records from the end of the fourteenth century up to 1642, co-edited with Alexandra Johnston, founder of the Records of Early English Drama project.

Her recent work focuses on the modern production of Mystery Plays, with an emphasis on York. Her book, Playing a Part in History: The York Mysteries, 1951-2006 was published in 2009. She later edited a collection of essays by scholars and community theatre practitioners that originated in a conference organised by the York guilds, entitled The York Mystery Plays: Performance in the City, published in 2011.

She continues to write journal articles and essays for book collections on Mystery Plays in the modern world and on the life of these plays in their original context. She has also written on Chaucer and on the work of Canadian author Margaret Atwood.
