The University of the Arts London and the National Theatre Archive are proud to announce the appointment of post doctoral research fellow Dr Eleanor Margolies. This unique collaboration between the National Theatre and UAL, supported by the Rootstein Hopkins Foundation, will support the NT in expanding the reach of the Jocelyn Herbert Archive, which is now housed in the NT’s Archive, to the widest possible audience. Workshops, visits and talks will encompass schools, colleges and the general public raising the profile of theatre design and the crucial role designers play in the production process.
Dr. Margolies whose recent publication PROPS, part of the Palgrave Readings in Theatre Practice Series, is an important point of reference for students and researchers will be working with Erin Lee, Archivist at the National Theatre and Professors Eileen Hogan and Jane Collins at UAL.
In addition to the outreach work, Dr Margolies will also be conducting her own research in the Jocelyn Herbert Archive looking at the legacy of this important 20thcentury designer for 21st century practice. This fellowship consolidates the close links already established between the National Theatre and UAL through events like the Jocelyn Herbert Lecture Series, the annual involvement of MA Curating and Collections at Chelsea with the archive and two weeks of intensive research by BA Theatre Design students from Wimbledon College of Arts.
