Professor Christopher McCullough
Emeritus Professor of Drama
Christopher is Emeritus Professor of Theatre. He came to theatre by a circuitous and often perverse route through fine art, contemporary dance and English Literature. In his current post he spends a good deal of his time on administration and representing the School's interests to the broader University community. However, he hopes to reconnect with the teaching, practice and research of theatre before too long. His published work and theatrical practice as a director, have focussed primarily, but not exclusively, on the dissemination of 16th and 17th century stage practices and early 20th Century European political theatre. The new research interest to which he aspires is a study of the stage practices emanating from the theatrical adaptation of Gothic novels.
