Isabel Stuart has recently obtained her PhD in the Drama department at Queen Mary, where she has also worked as a lecturer. Her research explores the political potential of feelings in feminist performance using audience research and feminist listening methodologies: it is driven by the assertion that art, and affective encounters in performance in particular, can help imagine and bring forward better futures. Isabel has worked as an independent researcher for several artists and academics. She has also worked at the National Theatre on an archival project which produced resources for students on the work of contemporary women playwrights of colour for the National Theatre Archive.
Izzy is currently working part-time at PPP as a member of the fundraising team.
