The Dance, Theater and Performance Studies Working Group invites you to join us for our second session of the year. As a follow-up to our first discussion, this second session will be organized around a screening of a performed lecture by Susan Foster, “Kinesthetic Empathies and the Politics of Compassion” and a reading of her essay, “Textual Evidances.” We will continue our discussion of how dance, drama, and performance act as a lens through which to understand and investigate larger social, cultural, and political events and movements and extend that discussion to a consideration of how histories of dance, drama, and performance come to be shaped.

Susan Foster’s article, “Textual Evidances” in Representing the Past: Essays in Performance Historiography, eds. Charlotte Canning and Thomas Postlewait (Iowa City: University of Iowa Press, 2010), 333-350, can be found on the working group website.
