Call for Papers: Mediating Performance Experiences Conference

This interdisciplinary conference brings together a diverse group of scholars, performance artists, and media developers to discuss the challenges and advantages of interpersonal, political, cultural and performative dialogues produced under the irreversible changes in communication technology. Participants are invited to examine questions of translation, performance mediation, use of technology, and media influence as manifested historically, conceptually and practically in theatre and cultural performances.

The organizing committee will be curating academic panels and performative events dedicated to public and artistic discourses related to the history and current practices. Send inquiries and proposals to: Dr. Peter Kuling (pjk@uottawa.ca) & Dr. Yana Meerzon (ymeerzon@uottawa.ca). The deadline to apply with proposals for this conference is November 1, 2018.
