Jane Plastow has news for you….

newton international fellowshipJane Plastow has just passed along some great (non Edinburgh related) news… The Workshop Theatre has a visiting scholar from Nigeria coming to work with us for two years.

Dr Chukwuma Okoye (or Chuks – apparently) has won an incredibly prestigious Newton Fellowship – the first ever given to the University of Leeds, and we will be planning to get him to offer various lectures and workshops during his time with us.

Also Jane is very happy because she just got a grant to go and work in Uganda in February next year. She’ll be working with various past PhD and Masters students: Susan Kiguli, Evelyn Lutwama and Alison Lloyd-Williams on a project “bringing women of different educational and age groups together to use theatre to discuss what they see as really important about their lives and identities as women within a very patriarchal society.”

Whilst in reality, I’m told she’ll be spending most of her time white-water rafting.
