Dr Jozefina Komporaly
BiographyI am second year coordinator for Critical and Contextual Studies on the Performance and Digital Technologies programme at Wimbledon College of Arts. I teach at all levels across the undergraduate programme and on the MA in Theatre Design, including dissertation supervision.
My research centres on contemporary performance in a British and European context, and investigates concerns in gender, identity, translation and adaptation. I am also a practising literary translator, and have translated several contemporary plays and novels from Hungarian and Romanian into English. My translations were published by Seagull Books, appeared in 'Words without Borders', 'Asymptote', 'Index on Censorship', 'Trafika Europe', and were staged on both sides of the Atlantic, most recently by [Foreign Affairs] in London and Theatre Y in Chicago.
