We are seeking to appoint a Lecturer in Global Majority Theatre and Performance, with research and teaching expertise in the histories, theories and/or practices of global majority theatre and performance, including transnational, indigenous and diasporic communities of practice.
We welcome applications from candidates who engage across temporal and geographic locations, as well as those who focus on specific historical and cultural contexts. We are excited to hear about scholarship which intersects with or expands upon one or more of the following lenses: historiographies of global performance; anti-racist and decolonial praxis; social and reparative justice; critical race theory, and environmental arts/humanities.
Theatre Studies at Glasgow
Theatre Studies at the University of Glasgow is committed to producing world-leading research and scholarship that examines the aesthetic, socio-political, historical and ethical dimensions of theatre as a cultural practice. Interdisciplinary in orientation, we understand theatre and performance as unique objects of study, and as powerful lenses for thinking about questions of knowledge, meaning and value. Current themes of interest include ecology and environment, digital culture, gender and sexuality, disability studies, justice and equity, class, post-colonialism, cultural policy, archival studies and historiography. We embrace a wide range of research methods, including practice research, and support innovative outcomes that encompass books, essays, performances, installations, films, websites and other hybrid forms. We aim to make a research-led contribution to the expanded field of theatre and performance studies, informing social and cultural change.
Our teaching is research-led and delivered across modes including practice workshops, seminars, and lectures. Colleagues are expected to teach in their own specialism as well as contribute to team-taught courses across the discipline. We aim for an inclusive, diverse and equitable learning environment for all staff and students. In addition to our undergraduate studies, we run three successful Master programmes (Playwriting and Dramaturgy, Theatre and Performance Practices, Theatre Studies) and have a strong cohort of PhD students, both within and outwith the Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities (SGSAH).
We work closely with organisations across the arts and culture sector on projects that seek to extend our research and learning community to include diverse publics and institutions in Scotland, the UK and internationally.
Informal enquiries should be directed to Professor Deirdre Heddon,
