Prof Stephen Bottoms

I have a wide-ranging set of research interests, covering many aspects of contemporary theatre and performance. I am also increasingly concerned with exploring inter-disciplinary research initiatives, and believe that theatre/performance studies has much to offer in such two-way dialogues.

Person

Prof James Thompson

My current research interests cover all aspects of applied theatre, particularly theatre and performance in war and disaster zones, and then I have related interests in the performative aspects of war and humanitarianism. I have a particular interest in theatre and performance in Sri Lanka and theatre programmes in eastern DR Congo. I have worked in Sri Lanka for UNICEF's Children Affected by Armed Conflict Unit and developed a range of theatre projects for communities affected by the war.
