    About Kelly Jones

    Kelly joined the School in September 2007 after completing her PhD at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth which focused upon the political aesthetics of self-conscious play in early modern drama on the English stage. Her more recent research interests focus upon theatrical realizations of the supernatural, from the medieval period to the present day and she is currently working upon a monograph entitled ‘Staging the Supernatural’. She has also published on representations of authorship in theatrical performance, neo-Victorian criminalities and the relationship beween the theatre and popular culture.

    Alongside her work as Drama Programme Leader (Kelly took on the role in 2009), she teaches a range of modules across the BA Drama programme.
