Performing Identities

Our work explores new ways of conceptualising identity, paying particular attention to the ways in which gender, race, ethnicity and class are performed in discrete cultural contexts. Our focus on the social impact of research into identity performance, broadly construed, means that some of our work takes practical steps towards improving the lives of individuals and communities in diverse regions of the world. In particular, we are interested in developing medical humanities approaches to pressing issues around public health and wellbeing.
