For anyone in Manchester this August, colleague and friend Alex Flynn and I are convening a panel on the transformative potential of theatre and politics at the World Congress of Anthropological and Ethnological . The panel is diverse and should be fun. If you are interested in the theme, message me, as Alex and I are working on further projects.
'All the world's a stage': the social and political potentialities of theatre and performance
See this link for papers and abstracts:
This panel seeks to investigate the potential of theatre and performance to provide reflections on alterity, politics, sociality, and society. We explore how theatre and performance provide insight into the emergence of forms of protest, new forms of social relations, and societal aspirations.
Maybe see some of you there,
