Faculty Seminar Series "The Humanities and the Value of Performance"
The Faculty Seminar Series, “The Humanities and the Value of Performance,” presented by the IHR, draws faculty, students and community members together to discuss the concerns and methodologies that characterize and distinguish humanities research.
The ideas, practices, and metaphors of performance form a core foundation in the disciplines that comprise the humanities. From notions of mediated performance within literary, filmic, musical and dramatic discourse, to ideas about the ethics, politics, and the rhetoric of performance, and the cultural, historical, and religious impact and implication of performance, the humanities contributes important and compelling research for understanding one of the root endeavors that makes us human. Over the three dates of the 2012-13 IHR Faculty Seminar Series, we will hear from six faculty members, whose research encompasses aspects of performance within artistic and creative practice and cultural theoretical discourse.
