Media and/as Performance

Susan Morrow

Back to "Spring 2023" courses

Informed by recent German media theory on ‘cultural techniques’–from the operation of doors to embodied acts of writing and image-making– this seminar will explore the relations between performance and media, from interactions between performance practices and modern/new media to implications of performance for theorizing media in general. Topics will include shared concerns in media studies and performance studies (such as embodiment, (im)mediacy, practice, and the archive), relations/tensions between performance and text, movement and inscription, and thinking media through the lens of practice as well as practice as the basis of theory.
