New publication *Interdisciplinarity in the Performing Arts: Contemporary Perspectives* is out now!
Dr Stefan Aquilina (Theatre Studies) and Dr Malaika Sarco-Thomas (Dance Studies), both of the School of Performing Arts of the University of Malta, have recently co-edited the publication Interdisciplinarity in the Performing Arts: Contemporary Perspectives (Malta University Press). The volume contributes to current discussion about the intrinsic interdisciplinary nature of the performing arts, while also identifying the potential which theatre, dance, and music have in creating bridges with other disciplines like neuroscience, social sciences, philosophy, pedagogy, and therapy.
Featuring contributions from KU Leuven (Belgium), Royal Holloway (London), Ghent University, Universidade Estadual de Campinas (Brazil), Vrije Universiteit Brussel, the University of Malta, and Adam Mickiewicz University (Poland), Interdisciplinarity in the Performing Arts explores questions brought forward by approaches to performance that interweave theory and practice, through examples of methodologies, philosophies, interpretations, and applications of interdisciplinarity today. It should be of interest to scholars, practitioners, and students engaged in advancing practice and knowledge beyond the safety of segregated and well-trodden academic pathways.
Interdisciplinarity in the Performing Arts: Contemporary Perspectives has been endorsed by Prof. Maria M. Delgado (The Royal Central School of Speech and Drama) and Prof. Sarah Whatley (Centre for Dance Research).
