ATHE PFSG Philosophy and Performance Working Group


ATHE PFSG Philosophy and Performance Working Group

Philosophy and Performance exists as a working group within the Association for Theater in Higher Education's Performance Studies Focus Group.

The group meets each August prior to ATHE's yearly conference in order to discuss relevant texts, facilitate the exchange of ideas, and engineer collaborations among researchers whose work takes place at the intersections of theater, performance, and philosophy.

In recent years, the group has held sessions on the writings of Alain Badiou, Kenneth Burke, Martin Puchner, and Gilles Deleuze. It has also recently provided the impetus for a number of multidisciplinary ATHE sessions, including: "Seventeenth-Century Philosophy and Performance" (2009); "Affect, Abandon, Alterity, and Apophasis in Performance" (2010); and "Voice in Theory / Voice in Practice" (2011).

If you are interested in joining the Philosophy and Performance working group, please feel free to contact the convener at
