Research Statement

My research centres around theatre, translation and performance. As such it is supported by the principles of practice of research, where both are seen to be mutually interrogating, forming together a bi-ocular focus that brings together theoretical models and paradigms with forms of cultural praxis. In this sense, translation is assessed as a creative and re-creative practice whose methods, scope and insights underpin a conception of the Humanities as both rooted and contextualised in the current moment, and alive to the challenges and shaping forces of diverse histories and geographies.
