Johann Gregory's picture


I'm interested in people, ideas and doing things.

I am a Research Associate for the Creative Economy team / Creative Cardiff. I have also taught English literature at Cardiff University and continue to research in that area: my PhD in English literature focused on Shakespeare, taste and audience expectation.

I've lived in Cardiff since 2003, apart from one year when I worked in Norwich at the University of East Anglia.

The purpose of my role in the team at Cardiff University is to facilitate research relating to the creative economy and to foster, or take part in, research which has an impact.

I joined the team in December 2015 to work as a research co-ordinator, helping develop research groups at Cardiff University as part of the Creative Cardiff Research Network. My brief is to encourage greater collaboration across the College of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences, and beyond.

As well as organising events and workshops, I support the activities of the network, and its research groups: Festivals Research Group; Creative Labour and Cultural Production; Virtual and Augmented Reality and Binaural Recording.

I'm also working to help network creative hubs in the City Region.

I previously worked at the University of East Anglia, where I was a Postdoctoral Lecturing Fellow in English Literature. Before that, I was a postgraduate tutor and student at Cardiff University.
