Professor Simon Trussler

Simon-solo1Professor Simon Trussler, former Senior Research Fellow of the College, retired in 2011. His contribution to theatre scholarship has been significant and he continues to exert a considerable influence given his curation of an immense body of knowledge evidenced by his co-editorship (first with Clive Barker and now with Maria Shevtsova) of New Theatre Quarterly since its inception. Professor Trussler is in touch with new playwriting and current theatre scholarship through his ownership of Country Setting which works with Faber & Faber and Bloomsbury in the publication of plays and other material connected to drama and theatre studies. He is currently researching a book, Plays and Print, for Methuen Drama, which traces the ways in which the form taken by the printed play has affected its reception, how far it has reflected the intentions of the author, and the technology and social expectations of the times, with special concern for the effects of the digital revolution on play publishing.
