TOP STORY: Bidding Farewell to Dr Margaret Shewring
On 31 August 2020 Dr Margaret Shewring retired from Theatre and Performance Studies after 42 years teaching in the department. Margaret has inspired generations of theatre scholars and practitioners with her research on Shakespeare and his contemporaries, Renaissance and Early Modern European Festivals, and the design of space for performance on the contemporary stage.
Fortunately Margaret will remain an active researcher and will be an Emeritus Reader in the department. She plans to celebrate her retirement in 2021 when she is due to host a conference as part of Coventry City of Culture. Find out more about Margaret's extraordinary career on her staff page.
