Intersections of humans and various technologies have yielded numerous new forms of display, styles of communication, relations of force, hierarchies of power, types of communities, spectra of emotions in humans, and who-knows-what in technological entities. This course is an experimental thinking lab whose goal is to examine a variety of objects and ideas that suggest a redefinition and interconnection of the terms “performance” and “technology.” Together, the class participants ask: “How are current concepts of performance changed by current concepts of technology, and vice versa?” “How are different kinds of performance and different kinds of technologies combining to produce unique assemblages?” “How do the current overlaps between performance and technology allow us to regard past phenomena in a new light?” and “What can we foresee for the future of performance and technology?” By exploring these and many other questions, the participants in this class are pioneers of an emergent field of scholarship that puts Performance Studies and New Media Studies in direct conversation with one another.
