Call for Research Day IV: Performance and Feminism

Welcome to present or participate in our fourth Research Day on 20 March. We are excited to have Iris van der Tuin as our keynote speaker. See more about her and the full call here.

There is a long tradition of feminist performances, feminist studies of performance and debates on how to perform feminism. From “A Vindication of the Rights of Woman” (1792) to Queer Ecologies (2010), from Alexandra Kollontai to intersectionality, feminist theorizing has been foundational for epistemological critique and utopian political thinking. And feminism has been performed, in provocations against patriarchy like Carolee Schneemann’s “Interior Scroll”, Valie Export’s “Genital Panic” or Pussy Riot’s punk rock as well as in subtle autobiographical gestures or collective consciousness raising like Meetoo. How else is feminism performed today?

We invite everybody interested in the connections of feminism and performance, performance art, live art, performance-as-research, research on and in performance, or performance studies to join us in exploring various approaches to feminism and performance. How, in what various ways, is feminism performed today? What aspects of feminist thought are important for contemporary performance art? How can performance art contribute to feminist struggles? How to do feminism with performance?

Deadline for proposals is 20 February. Welcome!
