Baron Kelly

UW–Madison’s Baron Kelly, a professor of acting in the School of Education’s Department of Theatre and Drama, has been named to the board of the Harold Pinter Review, a journal published by the International Harold Pinter Society.

A Nobel Prize-winning playwright, actor, and director, Harold Pinter was born in 1930 in London, England, and died in 2008. The International Harold Pinter Society explores the playwright’s life and works by means of historical and critical writing; artistic performances; the amassing of historical documentation; and publications devoted to Harold Pinter and his writing, acting, and directing. The subjects of study also include the contributions of Harold Pinter and other contemporary dramatists to various art forms.

The Harold Pinter Review collects essays, reviews, and primary materials on the works of Harold Pinter and other modern and contemporary dramatists.

Kelly joined the Department of Theatre and Drama’s faculty this fall and holds a concurrent appointment with the Department of Continuing Studies’ Odyssey Project. He is a four-time Fulbright Scholar and a member of the National Theatre Conference. He earned his PhD in theatre research from the UW–Madison and has traveled extensively as a cultural specialist for the United States Bureau of Education and Cultural Affairs, teaching and lecturing on the theatre in Africa, Europe, and Asia.
