Biography

Dr Elaine O'Sullivan is a research assistant in the Centre for Dance Research (C-DaRE). She has a PhD in Theatre and Performance Studies from the University of Bristol. Her research focuses on movement-based performance practices and on strategies for recreating, reimaging and reusing cultural heritage. Her research has been awarded competitive research funding including an NUI (National University of Ireland) Denis Phelan Scholarship and an NUI Travelling Studentship in the Humanities and Social Sciences. 

Currently, she is working on an EU funded research project entitled 'Kaleidoscope - 1950s in Europe'. The project aims to leverage photographic content from Europeana digital collections to increase user engagement. In addition, through a regular yoga and movement meditation practice she continues to explore the relationship between dance and wellbeing.
