Biography

I received my doctoral degree in Theatre Studies from the University of Glasgow in 1999.

From 1998-2005 I was a Lecturer in Drama at the University of Exeter.

I returned to Glasgow in 2005, was promoted to Professor in 2012, and was appointed to the James Arnott Chair in Drama in 2015. The Chair of Drama was founded in 1972 and renamed in 1996 in memory of its first incumbent, James Fullarton Arnott (1914-1982). Arnott founded the Department of Drama at the University of Glasgow in 1966.

I was Dean of Graduate Studies for the College of Arts from 2010-2013 and from 2014-2020 was founding Dean/Director of the Scottish Graduate School for Arts & Humanities/AHRC DTP Scotland. I was also Deputy Head of College of Arts from 2015-2020.

I am a member of REF 2021 Sub-panel UoA 33: Music, Drama, Dance, Performing Arts, Film and Screen Studies.

Research interests

Dee book1 pic

My doctoral research focused on feminism and live art and my commitment to contemporary performance and theatre practices persists. Significant publications include Devising Performance: A Critical History (Palgrave Macmillan 2005), co-authored with Jane Milling, Autobiography and Performance (Palgrave Macmillan 2008), The National Review of Live Art 1979 - 2010: A Personal History - essays, anecdotes, drawings and images (New Moves International 2010), Histories and Practices of Live Art, co-edited with Jennie Klein (Palgrave Macmillan 2012) and It’s All Allowed: The Performances of Adrian Howells, co-edited with Dominic Johnson (Intellect and LADA 2016).

Another enduring interest has been walking aesthetics, with the publication of numerous articles alongside practice-based research (see, for example 40 Walks, and Walking, Writing and Performance: Autobiographical Texts, ed. Roberta Mock (Intellect Books 2009). My creative research project, The Walking Library, a collaboration with Dr Misha Myers (Deakin University), was initiated in 2012. We have curated numerous commissioned editions of The Walking Library for different organisations, including Sideways Festival (Belgium), Glasgow Life, and The National Forest Company.

I am co-editor, with Professor Sally Mackey (Royal Central School of Speech & Drama) of an international series, Performing Landscapes (Palgrave Macmillan). Books published include Performing Mountains, Performing Ruins, and Performing Ice. I am currently working on the monograph, Performing Forests. If you have a proposal for this series, please do get in touch.
