Book proposal selected for Muñoz Minoritarian Performance Working Group

ASTR-2018-Conference

I’m so honored that my book proposal, “Conceptual Theatre: Race, Gender, and Dematerialization,” was selected for the American Society for Theatre Research (ASTR) José Esteban Muñoz Targeted Research Working Session, “New Research in Minoritarian Performance” Book Proposal / Grant Writing Workshop! For the past several months the conveners, Soyica Diggs Colbert, Douglas Jones, and Shane Vogel, have generously mentored the nine working group participants. We have received helpful and productive feedback from the conveners and co-participants toward revising our projects. Although we won’t be meeting in San Diego for #ASTR2018, I’m grateful to be part of a virtual assemblage modeled on Muñoz’s life’s work: “The need to produce minoritarian knowledge is a mode of utopian performativity, a certain striving that is both an ideality and a necessity.”
