Performance Philosophy Grant

Great news!  At the University of Wisconsin-Madison we have recently formed an interdisciplinary branch of the international Performance Philosophy research network with Erin BriddickJames BurlingJeff CaseyKat LiederMegan Marsh-McGloneJon McKenzieDijana MitrovicFrederic NeyratMichael Peterson, and Sandy Peterson. We’re excited to announce that the Madison Performance Philosophy Collective has been awarded a grant from Performance Philosophy for our Spring 2014 event, “Embodying Thought, Theorizing Practice, Performing Philosophy.”  This theory-practice symposium will be a space for the robust community of Madison performance-philosophers and philosopher-performers to showcase their current work, theorize together about the intersections between their own scholarly and artistic practices, stage philosophical discussion as performance, and generate new knowledge.
