Nilanjana Premaratna is a PhD student at the School of Political Science and International Studies, University of Queensland. She is a scholar and activist from Sri Lanka with a history of volunteering and working in the Sri Lankan conflict context for over one and a half decades. Her education and research interests build upon this activism and experience.
Nilanjana graduated from the University of Colombo with a Bachelor of Arts and completed her Master's degree at the University of Queensland on an Australian Leadership Award. In her PhD thesis, Nilanjana explores the role of theatre for peacebuilding in South Asia. Thus, her research and activist interests in the nexus of art and peacebuilding complement each other, drawing from and contributing to each other.
She co-authored "Art and Peacebuilding: How Theatre Transforms Conflict in Sri Lanka," a chapter in the following book: Oliver Richmond (ed), "Palgrave Advances in Peacebuilding: Critical Developments and Approaches," London: Palgrave Macmillan, 2010, pp. 376-391.
Our gratitude is given to Nilanjana for collaborating with the Program in Peacebuilding and the Arts to compile a set of initiatives and organizations in South Asia working in the intersection of theatre and peacebuilding for News from the Field and for our January Peacebuilding and the Arts Now newsletter.
