Dr Trish Reid

Associate Dean Learning & Teaching

About

I am Associate Dean (Learning and Teaching) in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences, which means I have responsibility for, and oversight of, matters relating to the quality assurance and delivery of taught programmes in the Faculty.

In the early part of my career I was a musician and actor based in my home town of Glasgow and subsequently a mature student, who entered Higher Education late and liked it so much I decided to stay. I was part of the first generation of my family to go to University and I retain an interest in students coming from non-traditional routes.

Before taking up my current role as AD I was an Associate Professor in Drama at Kingston where I taught a range of modules mostly in contemporary British theatre and performance. I have also taught theatre and performance courses at Goldsmiths College, Loughborough and Royal Holloway.

Professional membership

I am currently editor of the International Journal of Scottish Theatre and Screen (IJoSTS). I am also Treasurer of the Theatre and Performance Research Association (TaPRA) and a member of the Political Performances Working Group of the International Federations of Theatre Research (IFTR). I am a member of the German Society for the Study of Contemporary Drama and Theatre in English (CDE).

Research

Much of my research is in Scottish theatre and performance, an area in which I have presented and published widely. I am currently working on a book for Palgrave Macmillan titled Contemporary Scottish Theatre and Performance which will be published in 2018. I am also finishing an article and a book chapter on the black British playwright debbie tucker green, whose work I have taught for a number of years and who is, I think, among the most gifted playwrights of her generation. My latest publication is a monograph in Bloomsbury's Critical Companions series titled The Theatre of Anthony Neilson (2017). I have long been an admirer of his work.

I am interested in the ways identity politics intersect with politics more generally on the contemporary stage. I welcome applications from PhD students who would like to work in this area.
