The Department of Theatre and Performance's research embraces a range of global theory and practice in theatre and performance including play-texts, physical practices and critical/cultural theory on which students can draw in their research. The Department of Theatre and Performance's research culture is both interdisciplinary and intercultural. It's an ethos reflected across our staff, our programmes and our students. As a research student, you may register either for research based on practice with a written element, or for research by written thesis. If your topic is practice-led you should be concerned to contextualise your practice in relation to other cultural production and critical theory in your contribution to new knowledge. Empirical research is essential to innovative practice and you will be required to propose how you intend to conduct this during the course of your studies, as well as present and document this as part of your final submission. At research level, the Department's aim is to encourage and support innovative thinking and approaches to praxis, both historical and contemporary and within a broad cultural frame of reference, and for this to be conducted within the context of live as well as academic sources. Goldsmiths celebrates interdisciplinary and supervision may be conducted within the department as well as through inter-departmental co-supervision.
