Teri Incampo is a Visiting Assistant Professor of Theater and Dance. She earned her B.A. from Trinity College and an M.A. in Theater and Performance Studies from Tufts University. 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 centers on depictions of paid domestic labor on the stage and screen, the formation of celebrity and stardom, and the legacy of Black actors working in mainstream American entertainment between 1890 and 1990. 

Teri has experience teaching a broad array of courses in theater, performance, 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 national and global cultures.

In addition to her research and teaching, she has served as the Assistant to the Editor for the University of Iowa Press’ Studies in Theatre and Culture series and for the journal Theatre Topics
