Deirdre Heddon (born 1969), is Professor of Contemporary Performance at the University of Glasgow (UK). She is the author of Autobiography and Performance,[1] and co-author of Devising Performance: A Critical History[2] (both published by Palgrave Macmillan). Her edited collection, Histories and Practices of Live Art,[3] co-edited with Jennie Klein, was published in 2012 by Palgrave Macmillan.

Heddon is also a contributor to Walking, Writing and Performance: Autobiographical Texts[4] (Intellect Books, 2009) and has written a number of articles about walking and performance, including ‘Walking and Friendship’,[5] Performance Research (2012); Women Walking: Shifting the Tales and Scales of Mobility,[6] with Cathy Turner, Contemporary Theatre Review (2012), The Horizon of Sound: Soliciting the Earwitness,[7] Performance Research (2010) and Walking Women: Interviews with Artists on the Move,[8] with Cathy Turner, Performance Research (2010).

Heddon recently co-edited a themed edition of RIDE: A Journal of Applied Drama, which focused on applied theatre and environmentalism (2012). Her most recent project, Walking Interconnections,[9] extends her interest in walking and environmentalism. Heddon also undertakes practice-based research, with one project ongoing with Misha Myers (The Walking Library[10]), and another recently completed (40 Walks[11]). Heddon is co-editing a newly launched series for Palgrave Macmillan, Performing Landscapes, for which she is writing Performing Landscapes: Forests. Heddon is connected with the Walking Artists Network.
