Connor Overfield


I am a full time postgraduate researcher at the University of Leeds. I graduated from my undergraduate BA in Theatre and Performance in 2019 and I am now a Masters by Research student in the school of Performance and Cultural Industries.

The focus of my research (past, present, and future) is sexuality and gender in performance, in the many forms that takes. 

My Undergraduate research project explored the intersections of Politics and Drag Performance. 

My current research is investigating Queer Narratives in post-1990s British and American performance.
