Drama Research

The Drama Research Group was established in September 2016 with the following aims:

  • To promote Drama research from across De Montfort University
  • To increase the impact of Drama research out with academia
  • To develop interdisciplinary relationships between Drama researchers
  • To support those working in Drama at De Montfort University
  • To integrate and support our postgraduate community

We have interests in a range of Drama-related areas including contemporary performance practice, gender, modernist performance, live art, radio, immersive theatre, and theatre-in-education. We welcome collaboration and potential research students.
