What is the role of aesthetics in the production and dissemination of knowledge and research? In what new ways can we perform our knowledge, and to what new ends?

Un-covering and celebrating the latent performative potential of any pedagogical situation, prominent scholars and graduate students convene to consider such basic, yet often neglected questions: what does learning feel like? Philosopher and political scientist Wendy Brown calls upon scholars to recover “what is ineffably moving, sublime, or meaningful in the humanities.” Performing Knowledge seeks to do exactly that, focusing on the Humanities’ struggles with trends of neoliberalism.

Performing Lecturers include Meg Araneo, Patricia Clough (The Affective Turn), Jon McKenzie (Perform or Else) and Aneta Stojnic, and Graduate Students.

Performing Knowledge is an initiative by Amir Farjoun, Ph.D. Student of Theatre and Performance at the Graduate Center CUNY, in collaboration with the Segal Center. Co-produced with Mara Valderrama.
