Call for Papers
We invite academics, artists and other practitioners to debate, develop, contest and celebrate the relationships between culture, industry and performance – now, in the past, and in possible futures. We have the following in mind; and our minds are open
Value and efficacy
What are the synergies and contradictions between economic and cultural value in the field of performance? How can these be understood in terms of performance? Can we distinguish intrinsic from instrumental value?
What, in our various circumstances, are the problematics of both defining and measuring cultural and economic efficacies of performance practice? What methodologies and rhetorics do and might we deploy?
Commercial and amateur
How is the commercial stage being addressed from within the performance studies frame?
How is amateur performance being addressed from within the performance studies frame?
How has performance addressed and how is it addressing the various alienations, needs, gains and negotiations associated with economic, cultural and refugee migration?
How do economic conditions co-determine how cultural identities are performed, negotiated and resisted through performance? What is the present, past and future of cultural performance?
What are the present and future possibilities for performance practice and understanding across cultures? Or against cultural boundary-making itself?
What cultural and economic sense can we make of historical and global differences in genre definition, combination and synthesis in the field of performance?
Relations and determinations
How do economic and cultural drivers determine the relationship between the academy and performance practice beyond its walls?
What effects is the change in the global economic landscape having on performance studies?
How has performance engaged, and how does it and might it engage, with the several cultural industries? What has performance studies to contribute?
Training, labour and innovation
Where and how does performance practice develop; and what are the cultural and economic drivers?
What are the relationships between and within the academic and industrial spheres in the training of professionals, including performers, directors, scenic artists and technicians? What is the present and future of vocational performer training conducted outside educational systems – e.g. within the family?
What have performance studies to contribute to an understanding of work, or the relationships between bodily praxis and economic organisation?
In what ways do performance makers work? What for? What is their reward? What determines these?
Economy / Ecology
How has, does and might performance engage with concerns around environmental change and ecological impact? How might a performative focus on landscape, locality or habitus enable us to rethink the relationship of the personal, the economic, the political and the ecological?
Conference directors: Joslin McKinney and Mick Wallis
