Digital Technologies in Theatre and Performance Studies

A two-week institute for twenty-five college and university faculty on the impact of digital technologies on performance and on theatre history.

This institute introduces college and university teachers to ways digital culture is transforming theatre and performance studies. The first week focuses on the impact of digital technologies on performance scholarship, and the second, on digital performance practices. Both weeks balance lectures, seminars, and hands-on workshops. The project directors, David Saltz (UGA) and Sarah Bay-Cheng (Bowdoin College), are leading scholars in digital performance and historiography. They are joined by a visiting faculty consisting of twelve of the world?s foremost scholars and practitioners in digital humanities and performance, such as Philip Auslander (GA Tech), Peter Eckersall (CUNY), Derek Miller (Harvard), Kiri Miller (Brown), Ashley Ferro-Murray (Rensselaer) and Mark Coniglio and Dawn Stoppiello (Troika Ranch). HowlRound, a Boston-based online theatre commons, will livestream video and provide a platform for people around the world to engage with the institute?s faculty and participants.
