Project Summary

My research focuses on fin de siècle theatre criticism, specifically its cultural power and authority. I look at the reviews as documents of historical evidence while also questioning their bias and invistigating how the genre and our understanding of it marginalises voices and public identity in terms of gender, class and sexuality. 

Supervisory Team

I am supervised at the University of Exeter by Professor Kate Newey and my second supervisor is Professor Catherine Hindson from the University of Bristol.
