Performance and the ritual of consumption
Rachel Bowditch, assistant professor of theatre and film at the Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts, and Kevin Sandler, associate professor and director of internships in the Film and Media Studies Program, will present on “Performance and the Ritual of Consumption” as the first installment in the Institute for Humanities Research 2012-2013 Faculty Seminar Series.
This year’s Faculty Seminar Series is centered on “The Humanities and the Value of Performance.” 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 course of three dates, we will hear from six ASU faculty members whose research encompasses aspects of performance within artistic and creative practice and cultural theoretical discourse.

The Institute for Humanities Research is a unit of the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
