Author Biography

  • Katja Frimberger, University of Strathclyde

    Katja is Lecturer in Education Studies and Programme Lead for the MSc Education Studies (Jan. intake) at the School of Education/University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland. Curious to understand the relationship between theatre, film and education (in its broad sense of ‘formation’), she is particularly interested in the production-oriented elements of theatre/film-making and how these are theorised as education. She has published on Bertolt Brecht’s educational theatre philosophy; the ethics of participatory filmmaking and arts-based education/research. Her latest publication looks at Latvian director Asja Lācis' philosophy of education in her proletarian children’s theatre.
