From Margaret Shewring
It is with great sadness that I write to let you know that J.R. (Ronnie) Mulryne, a former Chair of Theatre Studies, died on Monday 28 January. He had become increasingly unwell in the past two months and, although he remained mentally alert, his body had become very frail as the cancer had spread and the treatments became more difficult to cope with. He died at home in his sleep.

PhD researcher Carmen Wong receives funding to develop and document performances in Wong's 'Eating into Elsewhere' practice-research
Congratulations to PaR PhD Carmen Wong and her collaborators who have received funding from both the Public Engagement Fund and the Connecting Cultures GRP to develop and document the diptych of Wong's performances: “Breakfast Elsewhere” and “Unmade, Untitled”. Carmen's social practice work explores how belonging in an age of globalized migration might be affectively embodied and performed through translative, and convivial food-making practices. A set of performances, in preparation for Coventry City of Culture 2021, will be staged next year. Wong will work with Coventry community organizers who will host the performances in their home kitchens, inviting audience participants from diverse backgrounds to dialogue about food, place, memory, and migration.
