I have recently graduated in Theatre and Performance Studies from the University of Bristol, with First-class honours (woo). I was also awarded the John Lavender Prize for outstanding contribution to the department of Theatre.
Much of my time this year has been devoted to writing my final year dissertation, on the topic of images of violence in the news. This blended my interests in theatre and journalism by linking performance theory with media analysis.
As I attempt to navigate the world without the safety harness of student loans, I will hopefully be doing a lot more writing. Some of this will be on theatre, some of this will not.
As of August 2017, I will be posting my writing/links to my writing on this blog, in order to keep a coherent collection of my work. To take a look at my writing for other publications before this date, please see my ‘Writing Elsewhere‘ page. Meanwhile, below are five pieces I have enjoyed writing on a variety of topics over the past few months.
