Performance y geografía de producción de saberes

Coordinadoras: Charlotte Canning, Jill Lane y Patricia Ybarra

Este grupo investigará los retos historiográficos de escribir sobre el performance en relación a los circuitos económicos de intercambio, los legados coloniales y la extracción capitalista. Aunque nuestro interés yace primordialmente en el performance localizado en las Américas, esperamos poder complicar las geografías de la producción cultural y de saberes al rastrear complejos legados de movimiento entre diversos espacios y períodos globales. Esperamos trabajar intensamente en escritos académicos e investigación creativa con un pequeño grupo de participantes dedicados a estos asuntos.

Conveners: Charlotte Canning, Jill Lane and Patricia Ybarra

This group will investigate the historiographic challenges of writing about performance in relation to economic circuits of exchange, colonial legacies, and capitalist extraction. While we are mostly concerned with performance that is sited in the Americas, we hope to complicate the geographies of cultural production and knowledge production by tracing complex legacies of movement between diverse global sites and periods. We hope to work intensely on scholarly writing and creative research with a small group of participants invested in these issues.
