2009-2010: Graduate Research Assistant (Managing Editor, Critical Studies in Improvisation/Études critiques en improvisation)

University of Guelph

Michelle Peek is entering her second year of the University of Guelph’s PhD program in English and Theatre Studies. Her MA thesis draws on theories of embodiment, performance, photography and psychoanalysis in her reading of The Century Project’s unconventional nude photographic portraits. Her academic interests include: feminist theories of embodiment, cultural studies, postcolonial literature, political theatre, trauma narratives, and ecofeminism.

There is a curious yet enormously fruitful duality in the way that improvisation plays on our expectations and perspectives.
