Event description

Description

Different Stages: Exploring public engagement for Drama and Theatre early career academics is a project run by Dr Naomi Paxton from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London, and funded by the British Academy. https://www.cssd.ac.uk/different-stages

The project is designed for Drama and Theatre PhD students and ECRs to discuss the role of public engagement and knowledge exchange within the discipline, to identify key areas in which advocacy for research in Drama and Theatre might be used to influence policy, and to learn skills so they can take the lead in creating opportunities for interdisciplinary and creative collaboration both within their institutions and as independent researchers.




The Bristol event will run from 10.30am to 4.30pm at Windmill Hill City Farm in Bristol, and is free to attend for any PhD student or ECR researching Drama and Theatre, or including drama and theatre practices within their interdisciplinary research. For the purposes of this project there are no time limits on ECR status or a need for a current academic affiliation – all are welcome!

The themes of this workshop are LGBT+ and Queer histories, community engagement, and audiences and cultural participation. Guest speakers are Dr Kirsty Sedgman (Lecturer in Theatre and British Academy Postdoctoral Research Fellow, University of Bristol), Dr Jana Funke (Senior Lecturer in Medical Humanities, Department of English and Film, University of Exeter) and Dr Catherine Hindson (Reader in Theatre History, University of Bristol).
