Caught in the Act: Performance and Performativity
An Interdisciplinary Graduate Conference
Hosted by UMass Amherst English Graduate Students


Performativity is inescapable; we all take part in it. Immensely productive in its broad, interdisciplinary applications, performativity has influenced projects engaged in configuring identities in non-essentialist ways, as well as focused scholarly attention on how performativity is manifest in everyday and staged performances. What are the political and artistic implications, then, for language and culture? This conference seeks to explore how performativity and performance intersect in everyday behaviors as well as in performances in literature, theatre, language, visual culture, and politics.

We invite submissions for scholarly papers, panels, performances, and creative presentations.
