Ravensbourne University London
Researchers at Ravensbourne are likely to draw from ethnography, creative methods, action research, textual analysis, and production and audience studies. We are as likely to work with large organisations (Barclays, Marks and Spencer, the Royal Shakespeare Company, the BBC) as with Small to Medium-sized Enterprises who may be more associated with newer economic structures and production ecologies. We are also involved in policy-making and standard-setting.

As a constituent College of the University of London, Central supports a dynamic research community of staff and postgraduate research students (PGRS). We have recognised expertise in the areas of acting and actor-training; applied and social theatre; directing, directors, scenography and design; and cultural histories of performance.
