Abstract

There is a growing literature where 'theatre' and 'drama' metaphors are employed to describe and explain roles people play and perform in everyday life. Within higher education, it is not unusual for lecturers to use theatrical parlance to describe their work. This paper has two aims: the first is to explore the characteristics of neoclassical and liberal progressive lecturers (using theatrical constructs). The second aim is to outline the possibilities of a more socially critical approach to the lecture 'theatre' and addresses some of the problematic features of lecturing as performance.
