Our research covers a wide range of outputs and themes. Our staff are actively engaged in practice-based research, creating theatre works, music compositions and documentary films that explore conceptual issues through performance and other creative modes of expression. At the same time, we are fully committed to conventional academic publications. Some of our recent books and staff publications will be uploaded shortly.
We hold a weekly Creative Arts research seminar during term time, which offers an opportunity for staff and research students to present and receive feedback on their work in a collegial surrounding. We also host visiting speakers at these and other public events.
Staff are actively engaged in research networks, on editorial boards, and regularly organise conferences and other public events.
We also have a vibrant postgraduate research culture. A dedictated page with details of their research projects and outputs will be uploaded over the forthcoming weeks.
We welcome proposals for research projects at doctoral and post-doctoral levels in areas covered by staff in Drama, Film and Music and advise you to familiarise yourself with our staff profiles so you can see who might be available to supervise your work. Please be sure to contact that staff member in advance of submitting your proposal so that you can refine your ideas and can confirm the relevant staff member’s availability for supervision and mentoring.
