Emeritus Professor Christopher Baugh
My research has been split between my practice as a scenographer, my writing about contemporary scenography and my interests in its history and theory. My work has therefore included practice as research projects (the Terezin operas for example), and traditionally published books, essays and chapters. I am currently exploring the ways in which computer visualisation, as a research methodology, can give us a distinctively new insight into ideas of sensation, sensibility, technology and spectacular effects in the late 18th century using reconstructions of Loutherbourg’s extant scenic models.

Dr Jessica Walker
Emeritus Professor of Performance and Culture
Joining the School in 2002, I was its Director of Research 2003-8 and Pro-Dean for Research & Innovation in PVAC Faculty 2009-14. My often interdisciplinary research has embraced cultural histories of performance; performance theory; arts work with people; sexual politics and sexuality; and performance, design and technology. Simon Shepherd and I co-authored Drama / Theatre / Performance (Routledge New Critical Idiom, 2004). In my retirement, we are preparing the 4th edition of Studying Plays for Bloomsbury and I am completing a monograph, Village Drama in Interwar England: fields and formations.
