Professor Carl Lavery

  • Professor of Theatre and Performance (Theatre, Film & Television Studies)

Biography

After spending a year in Paris at the University of Paris 8 as a recipient of the Entente Cordiale Scholarship Scheme, my first academic post was as lecturer in Drama at the University of East Anglia. I taught Theatre and Performance Studies at De Montfort University, Leicester, Loughborough, Lancaster, and Aberystwyth before arriving at the University of Glasgow in 2013. I am an associate editor for the journal Performance Research.

Research interests

Research Interests

I have long been interested in the relationship between politics and aesthetics, with a special interest in theatre and revolution. Lately, I have attempted to find a way of expanding that interest out to include an engagement with nature and the earth. My recent work has been concerned to investigate not so much an ecological theatre – which doesn’t make a great deal of sense to me – but rather a theatrical way of doing ecology and also an ecological way of doing theatre. I have published articles, books and special editions on various topics, including ruins, animism, the Situationist International, walking and the Paris Commune. I have also made films, published performance writing and collaborated on theatre projects. I have written extensively on a wide number of practitioners, including Jean Genet, Guy Debord, Samuel Beckett, Eugene Ionesco, and Lone Twin.
