Performance Studies (Minor)

Department Website

Program Description

Take an international and interdisciplinary approach to performance. Look at performance practices and events of different cultures around the world. What impact do they have on daily life and how do they shape the social and political landscape of that culture? Investigate the field of performance studies and its connections to other disciplines such as anthropology, theatre studies, philosophy, feminism, critical race theory, and more. You will analyze everything from theatrical performances to cultural and religious rituals. With peers from different academic backgrounds, you will explore chosen topics together using a variety of skillsets from a variety of perspectives.
