Dr Caitlin Vincent is a Lecturer in Creative Industries at the School of Culture and Communication. Her areas of interest include opera, digital technology, creative workforce and labour, organisational management, and gender and diversity.
Dr. Vincent has co-authored several high-impact industry reports, including 'The status of women in the Canadian arts and cultural industries: Research review 2010-2018,' and has published across digital performance, theatrical scenography, gender studies, cultural labour, and public diplomacy. A classically-trained soprano and acclaimed opera librettist, Dr Vincent's writing has been praised as ‘nuanced and honest’ (DC Theatre Scene), ‘intriguing’ (The Baltimore Sun), and ‘a luminous standout’ (The Huffington Post). Her opera Better Gods, with composer Luna Pearl Woolf, premiered in January 2016 at the Kennedy Center as part of Washington National Opera’s American Opera Initiative. With sold-out performances, the work was acclaimed as ‘fascinating and heart-wrenching’ (DC Metro Theatre Arts), told ‘with brutal honesty through Caitlin Vincent’s stirring libretto’ (Broadway World). In August 2017, Dr. Vincent and composer Douglas Buchanan won the highly-competitive Sackler Music Composition Prize to fund a new one-hour opera about Bessie Coleman, the first African-American female aviator, and Miriam 'Ma' Ferguson, the first female governor of Texas, for a premiere in 2019. Dr. Vincent graduated with honours from Harvard University and holds a MM degree in Vocal Performance from Johns Hopkins University.
