Out of the Wings in NYC

14 August 2009

Last week three members of the Out of the Wings team, namely David Johnston, Jonathan Thacker and Kathleen Jeffs traveled to New York for the Association for Theatre in Higher Education’s 2009 conference. Our seminar was a great success; 23 participants of our wiki-conversation which has been ongoing for the past year were in attendance. There never seems to be enough time to have the conversations, which seem to be over as soon as they begin, but the encounter continued with a post-seminar discussion and we hope it will continue into the future. Our preparatory conversation is available for viewing online. For the main site see the Main Wiki, and see here for our specific 2009 New York Seminar.

Specific thanks go to the Association for Hispanic Classical Theatre, particularly Ben Gunter and Susan Paun de Garcia, without whom the seminar would not have been possible.

For more information about the Association for Theatre in Higher Education see the ATHE Website or this year’s conference site, Risking Innovation.

Contemporary Theatre Review doctoral studentship in International Theatrical Cultures

15 June 2009

As Contemporary Theatre Review has expanded (with an allocation for 2009 of 136 pages per issue), so have the simple administrative tasks such as logging in of submissions, preparing publicity copy, routine communications with the publishers, etc. The Vice-Chancellor of the University of London has created a unique opportunity for a doctoral studentship based in the Department of Drama at Queen Mary to act as editorial assistant during their time as a registered student. As part of their scholarship, the editorial assistant will agree to offer 6-8 hours per week of administrative support to CTR.

This research studentship provides a one-off opportunity for a suitably qualified individual to undertake doctoral research on some aspect of international theatrical cultures working within the excellent provisions for graduate study in Drama offered by Queen Mary. The student will also play a crucial role in building further an international journal with exciting plans for the coming three years.

Applicants should be holders of a good first degree from any university, with relevant MA studies completed or close to completion, and should be competent readers and writers of at least one language other than English.

Applicants must complete a Queen Mary University of London postgraduate application form, which can be downloaded from:


In addition, they should provide a 500 word statement explaining why they are applying for this particular scholarship and why they feel equipped to take on the role of editorial assistant on the journal.

The application form should be marked clearly with “CTR APPLICATION DRAMA” and sent to the address at the top of the form. Applications may only be sent to Postgraduate Admissions and not directly to members of academic staff.

Further inquiries may be made to Dr. Michael McKinnie, Director of Graduate Studies in Drama at Queen Mary, at: m.mckinnie@qmul.ac.uk

The deadline for receipt of applications at Queen Mary is 3 July 2009.
Interviews are expected to be held on 10 July 2009 (date subject to final confirmation).

The Gran Teatre del Liceu, Barcelona

Cultural Branding, National Identity and International Visibility: Spanish Directors at Barcelona’s Gran Teatre del Liceu: 1999-2011

This Collaborative Doctoral Award offers an exciting opportunity to pursue a fully funded PhD with a leading international centre for research in cultural politics and theatrical performance with one of the world’s foremost opera houses. The research project will examine the ways in which the cultural branding of the Liceu through the work of Spanish directors has defined wider debates around the identity of the theatre and its relationship to Catalan nationalism and the regeneration of the Raval quarter of the city.
How to Apply
Applicants must complete a Queen Mary, University of London postgraduate application form, which can be downloaded from:


In addition to the details specified there, they should supply full details of the Master’s course completed or to be completed. In a statement of no more than 500 words, applicants should explain how their current academic interests relate to the proposed thesis, and indicate how they might refine the project in order to achieve their own research aims. They should also submit a piece of written work (an essay or a chapter, an extract from a dissertation) or a portfolio of reviews or interviews of not more than 5,000 words in support of the application. Award holders should inform referees about the distinct nature of the CDA project so that they may take this into account when writing letters of reference.

The application form and supporting materials should be marked clearly with “AHRC CDA APPLICATION DRAMA/LICEU” and sent to the address at the top of the form. Applications sent directly to Professor Delgado or Mr Matabosch by post or email are not acceptable.
