Celina McEwen is a researcher in the anthropology and sociology of education with close to 20 years of experience in universities in France and Australia. She currently manages and conducts research on the Australian Research Council funded project “Leadership Diversity through Relational Intersectionality in Australia” led by Prof Carl Rhodes (UTS), Prof Alison Pullen (Macquarie) and Dr Helena Liu (UTS).
Her work spans the fields of professional, higher, and community education, with two particular interests in i) the construction of professional practices and ii) intersectional diversity. These interests and work have resulted in the development, in collaboration with Franziska Trede, of the concept of 'deliberate professional' and its associated 'pedagogy of deliberateness' as a way of reconciling critical thinking, participation and responsibility in professional practice and professional education.

This chapter presents an examination of how participation in applied theatre projects can engender change and continuity. Using Bourdieu's field theory, I discuss the tensions that exist between the rhetoric of social change and outcomes for participants in applied theatre projects. In particular, I draw on findings from a longitudinal study of an exemplary Australian applied theatre project, The Longest Night. This study revealed that, though participants experienced some immediate change, the longer-term outcomes resembled permanence and gave an overwhelming sense of continuity. I argue that this is because this set of practices indirectly limits change as practitioners operate within a system that tends to contain their practice, product and impact, as well as reproduce legitimised social and cultural values and norms.
