Personal profile

My research is concerned with 'outsider' theatre criticism: who is creating it, where, why, and in what form. I am fascinated with the way that some audience members make the leap to amateur critics, and how this outsider practice has impacted on both the theatre and newspaper/media industries since the Enlightenment, but particularly since the arrival of the internet. I am interested in how Fan Studies and ideas of Participatory Culture might provide a framework with which to understand both the criticism published and the social and professional connections forged by these groups.
