Dr Lee Campbell is a Senior Lecturer in Fine Art in the School of Fine & Performing Arts, College of Arts.

Recent research publications include PARtake: The Journal of Performance as Research and Spark: UAL Creative Teaching and Learning Journal. He is currently working on an edited collection Disruptions, Interventions, Liminalities: Performative Teaching and Learning in the Arts. In 2017, he was awarded with a University of Lincoln Best Practice Award in Promoting Equality in recognition for his research into teaching and supporting those with a vision impairment. In May 2018, he will be presenting aspects of this research at 'Emerging Disability Issues: Varieties of Disability Activism and Disability Studies', Euro-Mediterranean Conference on Disability Studies and Disability Activism, organised by the Department of Disability Studies, Faculty for Social Wellbeing at the University of Malta. His research has been published by the Royal National Institute for Blind People and the Journal of Pedagogic Development. In March 2018, Campbell has been invited to give a keynote on the Monday of this exciting event at the University of Bath on multi-sensory approaches to art practice (predominantly considering those persons with a vision impairment).
