Dr Susan Valladares

My research interests span the long eighteenth century, with a special focus on theatre and performance, political history, gender, autobiographies and print culture. My first book, Staging the Peninsular War: English Theatres 1807-1815 (Farnham: Ashgate, 2015) explores the role of spectacle in the mediation of war, and the links between theatrical productions and print culture. I am currently working on a new project that investigates eighteenth-century theatre practices more broadly.
