International Performance Research Pedagogies: Towards An Unconditional Discipline?


Book presentation

International Performance Research Pedagogies:

Towards An Unconditional Discipline?

Eds. S. Bala, H. Korsberg, M. Gluhovic, K. Röttger (Palgrave Macmillan, 2017)

Fri 16 Feb 2018, 16-17.30 hrs. (followed by drinks)

University Theatre, Nieuwe Doelenstraat 16, 1012 CP Amsterdam

As buzzwords such as ‘internationalization’ and ‘diversity’ do their rounds through universities around the world, as technological possibilities promise to flip the classroom and blend various modes of learning, as the financialization of every aspect of university life threatens to undermine its core purposes, the question of a responsive and sensitive pedagogy in the Humanities becomes extraordinarily pertinent today.

What remains unconditional today in the pedagogy of the arts and humanities?


Theatre and performance studies scholars, practitioners and students come together to reflect on the guiding values and conditions of their approaches to pedagogy.

“The book offers a unique and much-needed interrogation of the broader questions surrounding international performance research, which are pertinent to the present and the future of Theatre and Performance studies. Marking the completion of eight years of the Erasmus Mundus MA Programme in International Performance Research (MAIPR) - a programme run jointly by the universities of Warwick (UK), Amsterdam (Netherlands), Helsinki/Tampere (Finland), Arts in Belgrade (Serbia), and Trinity College Dublin (Ireland) - the essays in this volume take stock of the achievements, insights and challenges of what international performance research is or ought to be about.”
