Research

My central research interest lies in the interconnections between philosophy (Critical Theory and continental philosophy) and theatre, drama and performance. Other research interests include contemporary British and Irish Drama, Modern European Theatre, Gender and Sexuality. I co-organised a symposium on 'Theatrical Aesthetics of Eroticism and Death' at Aberystwyth University in 2004 and, with Prof David Ian Rabey, the first international conference on 'Howard Barker's Art of Theatre' in July 2009.

I am a core convenor of the international research network Performance Philosophy
