Dr Jozefina Komporaly joined De Montfort University in September 2005. Jozefina’s research interests bring together a focus on British and European theatre and performance, and a preoccupation with translation and mise-en-scène. The contemporary emphasis in her research is shared with the specificity of the DMU Drama programme, and Jozefina strives for an ongoing reflection of her research in her teaching. Dr Komporaly published a number of essays on gender, women’s writing and contemporary theatre and the monograph Staging Motherhood: British Women Playwrights, 1956 to the Present (Palgrave, 2006). More recently, she centred on the role of translation and dramaturgy in intercultural and trans-national performance, and she is currently preparing the first English language edited collection of plays by internationally celebrated Francophone playwright, Matei Visniec (Seagull Books, forthcoming 2014).
