Carina Bartleet works on modern and contemporary theatre and drama in The UK and the rest of Europe. She has particular research interests in the following areas: women writing for the theatre; theatre, science and medicine; gender and performance; drama, theatre and intertextuality. Carina has worked with students on a wide range of productions ranging from Kane’s 4: 48 Psychosis to Ibsen and adaptations of Pinter, Ionesco and Angela Carter as well as on devised pieces. Before coming to Oxford Brookes, Carina worked at the University of Reading where she taught a wide range of theatre and drama courses from renaissance drama to contemporary British theatre. She is excited by the prospect of working on a range of Brookes’ drama and performance modules that mix theory, text and practical elements of theatre.
