Fully-funded PhD opportunity with Dr Katherine Hambridge
(5 March 2018)
The research project involves excavating the careers of female actors on the Parisian popular stage, c.1820-50: their self-fashioning and their representation in the public sphere through reviews, gossip columns, theatrical plates, portraits etc; their skill-set and agency in performance, their performance practices and repertoire; their institutional status and career trajectories.
The dissertation will be part of a broader interdisciplinary project drawing on methodologies from musicology, cultural and gender history and literary and theatre studies.
The project, beginning 1 October 2018, will be supervised by Dr Katherine Hambridge (Durham University) and Howard Coutts and Judith Phillips (Bowes Museum).
