Faculty Affiliates

As the interdisciplinary hub for Performance Studies research and scholarship on campus, Center for World Performance Studies seeks to engage Faculty Affiliates from diverse academic and artistic backgrounds, across Departments, Schools and Colleges. Faculty Affiliates are regular presenters in our speaker series, share research findings and methodologies with our Graduate Fellows, participate in our public events, make nominations to our artist-in-residence program, and nominate graduate students from within their own departments to become part of the Graduate Certificate in World Performance. The artists and graduate students nominated by our faculty affiliates make a contribution to the CWPS mission and to the university as a whole.
