Different Stages

‘Different Stages: Exploring public engagement for Drama and Theatre early career academics’ is a project run by Dr Naomi Paxton from the Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, University of London, and funded by the British Academy.

The project is designed for Drama and Theatre PhD students and ECRs to discuss the role of public engagement and knowledge exchange within the discipline, to identify key areas in which advocacy for research in Drama and Theatre might be used to influence policy, and to learn skills so they can take the lead in creating opportunities for interdisciplinary and creative collaboration both within their institutions and as independent researchers.


Booking is now open for the Bristol workshop on the 25th July with guest speakers Jana Funke and Kirsty Sedgman. Here’s the link for that:

There are some funds available to contribute towards the cost of travelling to and from the event for those who might otherwise be unable to attend. Please email Naomi Paxton on for more information.
