BiographyI teach and research in the areas of political performance and the theatricality of international relations. I have pioneered the application of performance theory to IR, and my past research has focused primarily on resistant political performances by marginalized identity categories. I hold a BA, MA and MPhil in Theatre and Performance, and a PhD in Politics and International Relations.
Areas of Research / Professional Expertise
Recent research has focused on American anti-war protest under the George W. Bush Administration, analyzing the performative efficacy of Code Pink and Iraq Veterans Against the War. Additionally, I have published research on performances of Conscientious Objection and silence in protest. I am currently embarking on a major research project related to performances of migrant identities in the United Kingdom.
