Staff Profile:Dr Patricia McTighe


Trish is currently a post-doctoral research assistant on the Staging Beckett Project

Areas of Interest:
As a researcher on the Staging Beckett project, I am currently working on the place of Beckett's drama in Irish theatre and culture, examining the relationship between culture and economics in twentieth century Ireland, the development of experimental theatrical forms in Ireland since the 1950s and the various ways in which Beckett's drama has been adapted to an Irish context, both politically and aesthetically. My research interests also include haptics in culture, gender in performance, live art, and theorising corporeality in art and performance.
