Performing Identity:
An Interdisciplinary Student Organized Symposium
November 11, 2018 | 12-4pm
Free & open to the public, light refreshments provided


Human beings perform their identities everyday - in the classroom, on social media, on stage, in religious ceremony, even in choosing what to wear in the morning. Students are invited to engage in dialogue about social identities, participate in panel discussions about how students and/or performers across disciplines engage in performance of identity on our campus, and attend skill-share sessions and workshops to learn tools for planning events and cultivating innovation in performance. Live performances by student groups and guest artists will be woven in throughout the event.
