Performance Working Group

The Performance Working Group investigates performance, broadly construed, as it comes to bear on cultural and social formations. The Performance Working Group is especially concerned with performances of race, gender, class, ability, sexuality, and the ways in which these performances resist, embrace, and define historical and contemporary politics. While the Performance Working Group favors mutually-constitutive intersectionality, a wide-range of disciplinary and theoretical approaches and methodologies are welcome.

The Performance Working Group is open to new members who are interested in exploring a scholarly performance paradigm. The group meets annually at the Cultural Studies Association Conference.
