Teri Incampo is a Visiting Lecturer of Theater and Dance. She earned her B.A. from Trinity College in 2012, and an M.A. in Theater and Performance Studies from Tufts University in 2018. In 2014 she co-founded Exiled Theatre, a Boston-based fringe theater company invested in producing new works by New England-area playwrights as well as reinterpretations of modern and postmodern theatrical texts.

Currently a doctoral candidate at Tufts, Teri’s research interests include postmodern and contemporary drama, race and gender in twentieth-century film and television, the culinary arts in performance and media, feminist theory, and protest performance. Her dissertation project centers on performances of paid domestic labor on the twentieth-century stage and screen. In addition to her research, she has served as the Editorial Assistant for the University of Iowa Press’ Studies in Theatre and Culture series and for the journal Theatre Topics.

Teri has experience teaching a broad array of courses in theater and media studies. Her pedagogical philosophy is grounded in the continuous project of democratizing the higher education classroom. She takes a “canon-busting” approach to crafting dynamic courses that challenge students to assess the intentional and unexpected effects of performance within our global culture.
