Performance and Media

  • Rutgers School of Arts and Sciences Murray Hall (510 George Street) New Brunswick, NJ (map)

Part of day-long symposium on "Performance And..." for the Rutgers Department of English.  A roundtable with Carrie Preston (Boston University) and Autumn Womack (Rutgers University), to be followed by a keynote by Shannon Jackson (UC-Berkeley).

"... when the theater brings new media technologies onstage, it refines—sometimes, even invents—the feelings that will attach to them.  Since these technologies, in turn, change how we understand our own bodies and feelings, theater and media move through history together—neither knowing which has taken the lead."
