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.

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 Manchester event will run from 10.30am to 4.30pm at The Edge Theatre and Arts Centre in Chorlton, Manchester, 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. Naomi is not placing any time limits on ECR eligibility or current affiliation – all are welcome!

The Manchester workshop themes are museums and heritage, interdisciplinary collaboration within the academy, and documenting contemporary performance. Guest speakers are Amy Ryall (External Engagement Projects Manager, Faculty of Arts and Humanities, University of Sheffield) and Dr Kate Dorney (Senior Lecturer in Drama, University of Manchester).

This workshop is the first in a series of five - other workshops around different themes will take place in Glasgow, Bristol, Birmingham, and London later in the year.

There are some funds available to contribute towards the cost of travelling to and from the event for those who might otherwise be unable to attend. Please email naomi.paxton@cssd.ac.uk for more information.
