About James Hudson
James Hudson joined the Lincoln School of Performing Arts as a lecturer in May 2012 after completing his PhD thesis ‘Interrogations of Socialist Theatre in Twentieth-Century Britain and France’ at the University of Leeds in 2010. He is interested in both contemporary playwriting and British and French political theatre of the twentieth century, particularly the work of Edward Bond, Sarah Kane, Simon Stephens and Chris Thorpe. I am also interested in theatre and right-wing politics. I would be interested in supervising postgraduate students in any of these areas of research.
I teach across all three years of undergraduate study and also lead the the MA Drama module ‘Writing About Theatre’. I am year tutor for level three students. I am also Admissions Tutor for the Drama department.
