Personal profile

Research interests

Lennox's research explores how individuated bodily experience is enacted through a repertoire of narrative resources and repeated physical gestures. His work is aligned to the fields of Performance Studies, Narrative Inquiry, and Ethnography. Lennox is the co-author of the monograph Boxing and Performance, the first resource to present a typology of boxing’s narrative resources and to place the experience of male and female fighters in dialogue. Lennox continues to work with his long-standing research collaborator, Dr Sarah Crews (University of South Wales) to explore the impact of the narrative myths on the embodied experience of boxing. Lennox and Crews are currently developing research around the visibility of Welsh boxing and the narrative experience of elite female Welsh fighters.  

Lennox is published in numerous peer-reviewed journals and edited collections in the fields of performance studies, sport and performance, medical humanities, and actor-training. He is currently working on a sole-authored monograph, tentatively titled, The Performance of Activism. The work develops a performance analysis methodology for the analysis of social media representations of race, racism, and anti-racist activism.

Lennox currently contributes to three PhD projects. He is principle supervisor for Anthea Moys and her project ‘Ambiguity and Antiracists Practices of Play in Flux Sports’, a practice-as-research PhD. He is part of the supervision team for Cameron Craggs' CDA, ‘Recreating History’, where Craggs is developing AI and VR technologies and software to (re)create and make visible the often-hidden history of women's boxing. Lennox is also part of the supervision team for Craig Green's CDA, ‘The Emergent Theatre’, where Green is building AI systems to produce an immersive and user-lead theatrical experience.

  • Ethnography
