Prof Jeremy Brotton
My research continues to revolve around the history of mapping and early modern global exchange, with particular reference to the European and Islamic worlds. Other interests include Elizabethan and Jacobean drama, Shakespeare and 17th Century art and consumption.
Prof Dominic Johnson
I am an expert in histories and practices of performance art and live art, including practices in performance that emerge from histories of visual art and experimental theatre since 1960.
Prof David Berman
My main research interests are in M-theory, the nonperturbative version of string theory. The extended objects in M-theory are membranes and five-branes. They are related to strings and D-branes in string theory via dimensional reduction. Over the last few years my research has been devoted to understanding the interactions of these branes. Mainly this is through studying how membranes end on fivebranes. My other interests over the years have been varied and include: Holography and the AdS/CFT coresspondence; noncommutative geometry; and S-duality in gauge theories. Recently I have been interested in backgrounds to string theory that are intrinsically stringy in origin and not just solutions to supergravity; these go by the name of T-folds.
