Performance Studies Research Group Meeting

Performance Studies Research Group Meeting

Wednesday, October 26 / 5:00 PM
Theater and Dance, TD 2517

What: A space and place for:- exploring new ideas; sharing ongoing research; putting an idea out there; tackling thorny notions and creative practice; engaging with Faculty and grad students from other disciplines.

Who:  grad students and Faculty from many disciplines, including music, theater, dance, art, media, anthropology, history, politics, creative studies, film, classics, cultural studies, sociology, geography….and many others.

Why should I be part of this?: because you’ll be with a small group of buzzing and supportive people who want to move things forward.

As one of the IHC’s Research Focus Groups, the Performance Studies RFG exists as a group of people from different disciplines interested in pushing ideas and creative practice forward in the broad and interdisciplinary area of performance studies.

We meet informally for a discussion of ideas twice a quarter.  We also schedule talks and events with invited speakers.  We’re planning a mini-conference for grad students in any discipline.  You can come to one event or all events.

If you can’t make the meeting on Oct 26, but would like to be sent details of future events, please send an email to Ruth Hellier-Tinoco,
