Claire joined the School of Arts in September 2015, having previously been a postdoctoral fellow at the Institute for Advanced Studies in the Humanities and the University of Edinburgh, and Senior Lecturer at the University of Lincoln. Her research focuses on cross-disciplinary modernism, British and Continental European theatre, performance theory and contemporary performance aesthetics, particularly in relation to sport and entertainment. She is the author of ‘British Avant-Garde Theatre’ (Palgrave MacMillan 2012), ‘Modernist and Avant-Garde Performance: an introduction’ (Edinburgh UP 2015) and ‘Migrating Modernist Performance: British theatrical travels through Russia (Palgrave MacMillan 2016), as well as multiple journals articles and book chapters. She is associate editor of Wiley-Blackwell’s ‘Encyclopaedia of Modernist Literature’ (2018) and, proving she is nothing if not diverse, is also co-editor of ‘Performance and Professional Wrestling’ (Routledge 2017).
