Committee Member

Dr Brid Phillips
The University of Western Australia

Since completing her doctoral research in Shakespearean Studies and the History of
Emotions, Dr Brid Phillips has expanded her research interests to include literary arts
and health and health humanities. Her work has continued to focus on meaning
making in Early Modern drama and how this informs modern communities of
experience. In addition to her published research in this area, she is also a co-founder
of the research group, Heart of the Matter. The Heart of the Matter is an interdisciplinary project which aims to foster collaborations which will deepen our
understandings of the heart and improve human wellbeing. A major component of the
project is its outreach activities such as the public podcast series and health
humanities workshops.

Brid was elected to the committee in 2023.
