On the 26th and 27th November the Faculty of Arts hosted Visiting Professor John Hall. A poet, teacher and essayist, John is currently based at Falmouth University. He is most associated with Dartington College of Arts – where amongst others he worked with York St John staff Jules Dorey Richmond and Nathan Walker – and his leading role in the development of Performing Writing.
While here John witnessed and discussed Level 3 IPAR work in development and delivered a paper to theatre students on Performance Writing. He also delivered the keynote paper, titled ‘The idea of practice and its relation to research’, as part of Research Snapshots, the Faculty of Arts Postgraduate Research Students’ Symposium. Two PhD students located within theatre, El Stannage and Cath Heinemeyer, also presented papers as part of this event.
