The Doctoral Theatre Students’ Association 2019 Conference
Opening Remarks by Edward Miller & Keynote by Sarah Bay-Cheng

In the streets, in our homes, in our hands; in public and private; in work, leisure, and social relations; ubiquitous and invisible, tangible or porous, screens are constructing a new reality. Artistic practices and critical theories are rapidly evolving to address this change of paradigm in communication, perception, and being. Gathering scholars and artists from multiple disciplines around the trope of the screen with its multiple resonances, Screening Performance, Performing Screens will reflect on the many collisions of theatre, performance, film, and other audiovisual media in scholarly, artistic, pedagogical, or performance-as-research works that engage with and challenge meanings of the word “screen,” as both noun and verb. How can historical conceptualizations of screens help us broaden the concept beyond the context of new media and interactive technologies? How has engagement with and on screens expanded or reshaped production and distribution of art and knowledge? In what ways have reception(s), spectatorship(s), and the discourses of marginalization been molded by screens?

Organized by Kyueun Kim, Curtis Russell, Christine Snyder, and Mara Valderrama.
