The Performance Studies track offers a base for students interested in a variety of performance forms, performance media, or in intermedial art. A concentrator in this track will study the multiple modes in which live performance articulates culture, negotiates difference, constructs identity, and transmits collective historical traditions and memories. Because Performance Studies is not primarily invested in one performance mode over another (such as theatre or dance), a concentrator will gain exposure to a broad spectrum of performance modes. Students interested in Design or Dance studies are encouraged to explore that interest within the Performance Studies track.
For more information, please see the Undergraduate Handbook.
Students wishing to enroll as concentrators in the Performance Studies track should contact Professor Rebecca Schneider, who serves as the Performance Studies track advisor, in order to discuss options that will best serve their interests.
