EMMA COX is a theatre and performance scholar based at Royal Holloway, University of London. Originally from New Zealand, she received her PhD from the Australian National University (ANU). Cox’s research focuses on contemporary refugee-responsive theatre, film and activism, as well as cross-cultural commemorative performances involving Indigenous and migrant communities, and postcolonial museum ceremonies. Cox is the author of the books Performing Noncitizenship: Asylum Seekers in Australian Theatre, Film and Activism (Anthem 2015) and Theatre & Migration (Palgrave 2014). She is the editor of the play collection Staging Asylum: Contemporary Australian Plays about Refugees (Currency Press 2013), an anthology of six Australian plays about and by refugees and the first collection to recognise the role theatre has played in one of Australia’s most hotly debated and urgent issues. Cox is currently developing an interdisciplinary project on the ceremonial and theatre histories associated with human remains, repatriation and cultural memory.
