Elaine O’Sullivan is a research student at the University of Bristol 

Doctoral project: Returning to Jamais Vu: towards an embodied theory and practice of the ‘Uncanny’ in the work of Anne Seagrave
Keywords: Anne Seagrave, the ‘Uncanny’, psychoanalytic and deconstructive discourse
Research details: My research explores the ways in which the returns of the uncanny can be consciously and critically activated across aesthetic, social and sexual-political frames. Drawing on psychoanalytic and deconstructive discourse, I propose that Anne Seagrave’s performance practice partakes of the ‘Uncanny’ despite the resistance of this spectral concept to modes of embodiment that dominate live art. My research methodology pairs critical and creative writing with a practical strategy of performance re-enactment.
Supervisor(s): Dr Paul Clarke and Dr Ika Willis
