Editorial Board

Platform is run by postgraduates for postgraduates. The Editorial Board is formed of some of our PhD students and collaborators from other universities. Read about our Board members and their research interests below.

Raz Weiner - Editor

Raz is a practitioner of theatre and stage. His MA project in Goldsmiths College focused on contemporary meanings and utilities of The Political in performance, and their scenographic implications. This study built on years of experience in community theatre and pedagogy in Israel/Palestine. Raz is currently working toward his PhD at Royal Holloway, University of London under the supervision of Dr. Bryce Lease. His research studies appearances and representations of 'Africa' and 'Africans' in Israeli public discourse, imaginary and cultural production. The long-term aim of his practice-based study is to experiment with the potential of performance to challenge moral geographies and discourses of race in Israel/Palestine.
