Research interests

Since 2013, I have been working towards an AHRC funded collaborative doctorate offered in partnership with The Arts Catalyst, London. My thesis 'Bearing Witness: On performing and documenting pain in Performance Art', considers the role of witness applied to contemporary performance art practices. I examine how pain operates in this context, alongside addressing the resistance and complexities associated with theorising this emotion/phenomenon/feeling.
