CONFERENCE ON AFRICAN AND AFRO-CARIBBEAN PERFORMANCE

Hosted by the Dept. of Theater, Dance and Performance Studies, University of California, Berkeley

As studies of African and Afro-Caribbean performance have acquired a wider relevance during the last decade, it is now time to examine the diverse critical approaches currently being practiced within these fields. How are African and Afro-Caribbean cultures being constructed, analyzed, and re-imagined by recent discussions about theatricality, transnationalism, diaspora, translation, Circum-Atlantic exchanges, or cyberspaces? The conference’s program will bring together a diverse array of presenters from Africa, the Caribbean, Europe, and the United States who deal with topics that include–among others–dance, drama, community theater, the links between social justice and performance, rituals, religious events, diasporas, carnival, and intercultural barterings.

REGISTRATION IS FREE, BUT WE DO NEED YOU TO REGISTER so we have an accurate attendance count for planning purposes. For more information, see our conference website at www.berkeleytdps.org.
Thank you!
