Socky O’Sullivan: A Leading Scholar of Florida Historical Literature


Maurice “Socky” O’Sullivan, Kenneth Curry professor of literature, Socky O'Sullivan, Rollins Collegebelieves that disciplinary boundaries should be cracked. Rather than looking at a discipline with a single lens, O’Sullivan shares the same perspective of Academy-Award winning director James Cameron: “Everything now is in 3-D.”
 
This interdisciplinary view is evident in O’Sullivan’s scholarly pursuits.  Co-director of the Florida Center for Shakespeare Studies, he has written extensively on literature, Shakespeare, Florida, popular culture, Irish culture, religion, and education. He is the author, editor, and co-editor of more than a dozen books (including five on Florida) along with 40 peer-reviewed publications and has presented over 300 lectures on these areas of study.
