Acting and Performance at Hallam is a dynamic and supportive community of staff and students, engaged in collaborative practice, with one another, our local communities and our regional arts sector. We have strong links with Sheffield’s cultural quarter, from the award-winning, multi-venue Sheffield Theatres, to a range of smaller fringe and community organisations, such as Stand and Be Counted and Theatre Deli. Recent collaborations have involved our students and colleagues in major international arts events, such as The Walk, as well as in developing performance work with acclaimed companies, such as The Babbling Vagabonds and Doppelgangster. At the heart of all our work, is our aim to support our students to become Change Makers: the next generation of socially engaged artists.
Acting and Performance sits within the Department of Humanities, providing staff with an extended community of research and teaching excellence, across the disciplines of English, History, Film Studies and Creative and Screenwriting, with whom to share good practice and develop collaborative strategies for local and global engagement.
As a lecturer in our team, you will be a passionate teacher, who engages and inspires students, but also has an understanding of the challenges they face. You will fit into a programme of teaching that considers Acting and Performance from both a theoretical and practical perspective and that focusses on the skills of the performer, the process of making work and on how performance interacts with and makes changes in the world around us. You will be willing to contribute to the broader life of the subject group, through attendance at team meetings and staff development events, and by supporting extra-curricular activities and trips. You might be an early career researcher, or a professional practitioner, looking to develop your academic voice within a research-active and supportive team.
