Dr. Peta Murray, 

Co-Investigator

Key research expertise: Creative writing (including playwriting); practice-led research, performance and installation studies, arts-based and creative methods; humour studies

Experience: My work as an Early Career Researcher draws on my experience as a theatre-maker to apply arts-based methods as means of inquiry and activism across modalities including collaborative texts, sonic essays, live art, installations and creative-writing projects. Publications appear in New Writing; TEXT: Journal of Writing and Writing Courses and with key players in the Creative Practice discipline such as RUUKKU, and Fourth Genre. Performance projects have been delivered via Melbourne Writers Festival and Melbourne International Festival. I maintain a practice as a professional theatre-maker, for which I hold AWGIE Awards, a Victorian Premier’s Literary Award and the Australian Government’s Centenary Medal for Services to Society through Literature.
