Nerida Newbigin taught Italian Language and Literature at the University of Sydney from 1970 until her retirement in December 2008. She is now a full-time researcher. Her research interests are philological and historical: the history of theatre and performance in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, late medieval lay piety, and the editing and interpretation of theatrical texts and archival material. In June 2009, she set up a web page of transcriptions, texts, and translations prepared in conjunction with her teaching and research at www-personal.usyd.edu.au/~nnew4107/Texts/Home.html. She was elected to the Australian Academy of the Humanities in 1995, and appointed to a personal chair in Italian Studies in 2001.
