Professor Katherine Newey


I took Double Honours in English Literature and History, and then a PhD in English Literature at the University of Sydney. I taught in the English Department at Sydney, and as a Senior Lecturer in English at the University of Wollongong. I returned to the UK to become Head of Department of Theatre Studies at Lancaster University in 1999, and took up the Chair of Drama and Theatre Arts at Birmingham in 2005.

I arrived at Exeter as Professor of Theatre History in 2012.
