DR KATE JOHNSON

LECTURER IN PERFORMANCE STUDIES

Katherine’s multidisciplinary education at the University of Sydney is reflected in her current research, which traverses and interconnects Performance, History, Anthropology and Philosophy. Her diverse research is unified by a focus on embodiment and performativity – in and as epistemology, pedagogy, historiography, heritage and community. 

ABOUT

Kate's ethnographic and archival research across Australia, Scotland and England led to her being a Visiting Researcher at the University of Edinburgh and the Scottish Storytelling Centre. Before this, she taught at the University of Sydney and wrote theatre criticism for digital culture magazine M/C Reviews (a sister-project of academic journal Media & Culture). 

 

She has presented papers at conferences in the USA, Canada, Australia, Sweden, Ireland, the UK and the Czech Republic and published with Palgrave Macmillan and Taylor and Francis, amongst others. Katherine has a passion for applied theatre and writing and directing contemporary feminist reinterpretations of classic texts.
