About Drama and Theatre Studies (practice-based through Dramaturgy, Playwriting or Performance) at University of Birmingham

This innovative new programme allows academic research to be conducted through practical experimentation, such as the investigation of processes of theatre making or the practical application of particular aesthetic theories. It provides a unique opportunity for you to specialise in a particular area of practice (Dramaturgy, playwriting, or Performance - which includes Directing) and prepares you for your chosen profession.

The practice-based route to this PhD lets you conduct academic-based research through practical experimentation in performance, playwriting or dramaturgy, accompanied with a 40,000 word thesis. The thesis must fully contextualise the practice and substantiate the claim that your work is innovative and demonstrates extension of the boundaries of the chosen field of research and practice. Research activity is led by staff and our research strengths lie in: contemporary practice, playwriting, directing and performer training; Russian theatre; theatre and politics; theatre and critical theory; Shakespeare; theatre and science; theatre history - Renaissance to 21st century) and Eastern European theatre.
