Performing the Gap

Year of Funding: 

This graduate study group fosters a critical examination of performance as a site for conceptualizing contemporary cultural practices, modernity, citizenship, and democracy via discussions among graduate students, faculty, community performers, and visiting speakers. This year, our group continues its successful dissertation writing group, showcasing graduate student work on performance-related topics for a university public audience, and continues to develop future collaborative projects around performance.
