This week’s episode focuses on ‘finding your voice’ – both in terms of having confidence to speak about your work but also the process of discovering a way of writing about your research ideas.  

Our guest is Rebecca McCutcheon, a director and practice-led researcher, working across site-based practice, feminist performance and feminist theatre history.   

Becs talks about her own journey into the PhD through her creative practice and the experience of being pregnant whilst undertaking her doctoral research.

She discusses the importance of the team of people who supported her through her PhD.

Becs describes the challenges of finding her own distinct academic voice and the advice that her supervisor gave her which helped to take her forward.

Becs also shares her advice about how to begin sharing your work publicly.
