Personal profile

Biography

Maryrose Casey is an Associate Professor with the Monash Indigenous Studies Centre. Her research focuses primarily on racialised performances as a site of cross cultural communication and negotiation between communities. Within this focus, her interest is in the initiation and presentation of public performances framed as cultural representations and the ways in which those representations are read and understood and translated into the historical record and social memory through narratives of culture and race. Her interests include both practices within formal performance frames such as theatrical contexts and informal frames such as on the street. Her work bridges performance studies, cultural history and ethnography.

Associate Professor Casey has published extensively on racialized performances in Australia from settlement to the present. Her research has been recognised by a range of national and international awards, fellowships and grants.

Casey undertook her PhD with the Theatre and Drama program at La Trobe University graduating in 2002. Her previous positions have been with the Centre for Theatre and Performance at Monash University, The Australian Studies Centre at the University of Queensland and the School of English, Media Studies and Art History at the University of Queensland.

She has made a substantial contribution to academic administration. She has been the Director of the Theatre, Performance and Music HDR program and held a variety of positions in relation to postgraduates, research and the ERA. She is currently the research co-ordinator for MISC.

She supervises PhD and MA candidates in practice as research streams in the creative arts as well as traditional theses examining racialized practices.
