Dr Erika Hughes

Senior Lecturer

Erika Hughes


I am Senior Lecturer in Drama and Performance at the University of Portsmouth, where I also serve as Course Leader for the BA (Hons) in Drama and Performance. My research is at the intersection of memory, history, and performance. My written work on Holocaust Theatre, Applied Theatre, and performance with people who have experienced military conflict has appeared in a number of journals including Theatre Topics, Youth Theatre Journal, the Journal of European Studies, and Performance Research, among others. My work as a director has been seen on stages in Germany, Israel, the United Kingdom, the United States, and Pakistan. 

I welcome supervision queries from postrgaduate students who are interested in applied theatre, cultural diplomacy, historiography in/as performance, ethnography, and the relationship between performance and military conflict.
