Personal profile


I have been teaching in Higher Education since 2014. My specialisms include dramaturgy and curation, devising and live art practices, modernist and contemporary European theatres, ecology and environmentalism, and feminist and queer theory.

I regularly work in teaching innovation, publishing for student audiences and on pedagogical practices. Particularly, I am working on a 'Greening the Curriculum' project that is developing transformational strategies for arts and humanities education in face of the climate catastrophe. I am keen to hear from publishers, colleagues or external organisation that may want to collaborate on aspects of this work.

I have published widely on feminism and postdramatic theatre forms based on my PhD research undertaken at the University of Glasgow. Currently, I am working on two major writing projects: a monograph titled 'Ecology, Feminism, Performance: 1962-2020' which is forthcoming with Manchester University Press and an 'The Cambridge Companion to Curating Performance' together with Kate Dorney.
