The Department of Performance Studies inaugurated the distinguished José Esteban Muñoz Memorial Lectures, on an annual basis, starting in the Spring of 2016. They envisioned the series as an annual event that both honors the memory of this celebrated teacher and scholar, and focuses attention on the cutting edge of the field of Performance Studies.
Each year they seek out an eminent scholar whose work is setting forth new waves of interdisciplinary work. In establishing this important series, they hope to bring together campus constituencies across fields (such as Art & Public Policy at Tisch, Social and Cultural Analysis at FAS, and the Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality), as well as connecting with New York-based artists, performers, and their audiences.
This talk is presented as part of the new SKIRBALL TALKS series. Mondays at 6:30 during the academic terms, SKIRBALL TALKS hosts visionaries from the worlds of politics, the arts, sciences, academia, and more. Future guests include Eckhart Tolle and Marion Nestle.
