Penny McCarthy’s ‘Catworld’ article published by Textual Practice Journal
Penny’s visual article ‘Catworld’ has been published by the Textual Practice Journal (Taylor & Francis Routledge), and are available to view on the journal website here: Catworld
The introduction of the full special issue ‘Animality, Performance, and Voice: William Baldwin’s Beware the Cat’ in Textual Practice Volume 37, Issue 7 (2023)‘ discusses Penny’s work in relation to the whole practice-based research project.
The article is part of a wider research project Beware the Cat that uses multiple strategies to examine William Baldwin’s satirical novel (1561).
More of Penny’s images appear as marginalia in the script for Beware the Cat by Frances Babbage and Terry O’Connor. The images act as visual interventions on the page that demonstrate the way in which the original theatre performance consciously explored the power of contrasting expressive languages.
