Areas of expertise I was, for many years, a Reader in Theatre History and Performance Studies and I am now a Senior Research Fellow at the University of Bristol. I have directed numerous plays from the classical and modern repertoire and has been organiser of several international conferences. I have published some 20 books on various aspects of theatre history, performance studies and the avant-garde. I am an expert on Italian Futurism and I edit the International Yearbook of Futurism Studies. My current project is a bibliographic handbook, 'International Futurism, 1945-2009', which lists some 25,000 studies concerned with the artists who were active in the movement and on a variety of aesthetic genres and media in which Futurism exercised a particularly noteworthy influence.
