The Center for World Performance Studies seeks to create intellectual and physical space for the study of performance. Our aim is to advocate for performance as a mode of research and as a means of public engagement, centering on underrepresented, non-Western, and diasporic voices, bodies, and acts. We connect—both locally and globally—students, faculty, artists, thinkers, and scholars in order to educate each other about Performance Studies and to promote interdisciplinary and intersectional insights and research methodologies.

CWPS | BLOG launched in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, exists to foster a virtual community of learning and practice. We invite students, faculty, alumni and friends to submit posts about their current work; reflections on performances they have participated in, witnessed, or created; or any other offerings to the community they feel compelled to share — through media, words or both.
