Research interests

Supported by the Brecknock Society and Museum Friends, Jayne's research on Brecon's theatre history is funded in memory of local Brecon historian Sister Bonaventure Kelleher. Jayne's research explores the following areas:

  1. Re-telling histories to re-frame and re-focus the importance of the ‘provincial’

  2. Re-focusing historiography on women's experiences and legacy

  3. Exploring models of practice which enable community engagement with heritage

She is passionate about ways in which communities can engage with their local histories and has recently acquired funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to deliver a community heritage project in rural Wales.

Jayne is an experienced teacher and creative producer and has many years' experience teaching and producing theatre with young people.  Jayne served on the board of trustees for Company 3 who create innovative original theatre with and by young people and is Young People's Champion on the board of Theatr Brycheiniog.  She is currently a lecturer on the Guildhall School of Music and Drama's PGcert Performance Teaching course and has worked with the Institute of Education to train Drama and English teachers.
