          PERFORMANCE STUDIES CONFERENCE
          "The Future of the Field"
 
          Thursday March 23-Sunday March 26, 1995
          Department of Performance Studies
          Tisch School of the Arts
          New York Univerity, NY
 
We invite you to attend the First Annual Performance Studies Conference, "The
Future of the Field."  The program will feature over 50 events, including
panels, roundtable discussions, practical workshops, and performances. Over 180
scholars, graduate students, and artists will participate as speakers,
moderators, and performers. In all, our participants will represent over 40
academic or artistic institutions from around the country and abroad. Our
international participants will hail from France, the former Yugoslavia,
Slovenia, Canada, England, Israel, and Australia. The conference will feature
four plenary sessions and seven "breakout" sessions, during which smaller
panels, seminars, and performances will be held concurrently.  Many panels
address interdisciplinary topics and aim to expand and complicate issues in
performance scholarship.  Major areas of inquiry include: new dance
scholarship; theatre research; new technologies and performance studies; queer
performativity and performance; gender in/as performance; reading/writing the
body; race and performance scholarship; and performing new identities.
 
Performances will be held each night. A Kick-Off cabaret will be held on
Thursday night.  The Friday and Saturday night events at a nearby nightclub,
Fez, will feature Yareli Arizmendi, Circus Amok, The Five Lesbian Brothers,
Marianne Goldberg, Dan Hurlin, Guillermo Gomez Pena, La Grand Scena Opera,
Holly Hughes, Salley May, Peggy Pettitt, and Carmelita Tropicana.
 
This conference inaugurates an annual event to be hosted on alternate years by
the departments of Performance Studies at the Tisch School of the Arts and at
Northwestern University. The Mid-Atlantic Chapter of the Society of
Ethnomusicology will hold their annual conference concurrenty on the NYU
campus. The theme of this year's MACSEM conference is "Ethnomusicology and
Performance Studies." The two conferences will co-sponsor a panel, and
registered members of the Performance Studies Conference will be welcome at
selected MACSEM events.
 
Conference events on Friday and Saturday, March 24 & 25, are scheduled from 9am
to 6:30 pm, followed by a reception on Friday and a Dinner on Saturday. On
Sunday, events begin at 9am and end at 2pm. A book fair will be held
throughout the conference.
