Project Summary

My research focuses on the fin de siecle theatre reviews, specifically their cultural power and authority. I look at the review as a document of historical evidince but also question its bias and invistigate how the genre and our understanding of it marginalises voices and public identity in terms of gender, class and sexuality. 

Supervisory Team

I am currently supervised in the University of Exeter by Professor Kate Newey and Dr Adrian Curtin. However, from September 2020, my second supervisor will be Dr Catherine Hindson from the University of Bristol.
