AHRC Grant Success
22 January 2019
The AHRC has awarded Dr Emma Cole a two-year leadership fellowship for her project ‘Punchdrunk on the Classics’.
The project will pioneer a new direction of research in classical reception regarding the classics and immersivity. The innovative and interdisciplinary project builds upon Emma’s prior work as academic consultant on Punchdrunk theatre company’s Kabeiroi (2017) and will see her seconded to the theatre company in a knowledge-exchange arrangement. The fellowship will result in a monograph, as well as a series of collaborative events between academics and practitioners on knowledge exchange and the creative industries and the classics and immersivity. The award is for a total of £234,189 and will start later in 2019.
