Course Introduction

The Department of Theatre and Performance's research culture is both interdisciplinary and intercultural. It's an ethos reflected across the staff, the programmes and the students. As a research student, they may register either for research based on practice with a written element, or for research by written thesis. If their topic is practice-led they should be concerned to contextualise their practice in relation to other cultural production and critical theory in their contribution to new knowledge. Empirical research is essential to innovative practice and Students will be required to propose how they intend to conduct this during the course of their studies, as well as present and document this as part of their final submission. At research level, the Department?s aim is to encourage and support innovative thinking and approaches to praxis, both historical and contemporary and within a broad cultural frame of reference, and for this to be conducted within the context of live as well as academic sources.
