Prof Maggie Gale - research

Research interests

My current research project is, ‘Citizenship, The Law and Performance Cultures in England 1900-1930’. Recent publications include, Maggie B. Gale and Gilli Bush-Baileyeds., Plays and Performance Texts by Women 1880-1930: An anthology of texts by British and American Women from the modernist period (Manchester University Press, 2012); Gale & Deeney, The Routledge Drama Anthology and Sourcebook: from Modernism to Contemporary Performance (Routledge, 2010); J.B. Priestley: Routledge Modern and Contemporary Dramatists (Routledge, 2008), and The Cambridge Companion to the Actress [eds. Gale and Stokes, Cambridge University Press, 2007). I have PhD students working in diverse areas of 20th and 21st century theatre cultures – examples being: ‘The Actresses’ Franchise League and Women’s Networks of Professional Practice’; ‘Postwar British Playwrights: Laughter and the Grotesque’; ‘Constructions of the real, the everyday and the audience in contemporary performance practices’.  I welcome all applications for postgraduate study, but especially in the areas of gender, sexuality, performance and theatre histories/historiographies.
