Hi to everyone!
It is great to see progress in the integration of performance, dance and 
corporeality studies in new interdisciplinary programs. We lack truly inter and 
transdisciplinary studies including visual and performing and media arts 
without the traditional hierarchy.

Beijos,
Isabel Valverde

brilliant new interdisciplinary MA. I will be teaching the core course in Fall

MA in Performance, Screen & Visual Cultures

Course description

This pioneering MA reflects the increasing multidisciplinarity of creative 
practices across performance, screen-based, and visual arts practices.   It is 
taught collaboratively across the Faculty of Humanities, involving a range of 
subject areas, notably Art History & Visual Studies, Drama, English, American 
Studies (School of Arts, Histories and Cultures); and German, Spanish, French 
and Russian (School of Languages, Linguistics and Cultures).   The core course 
will provide a theoretical, methodological, and historiographic introduction to 
the study of performing, screen-based, and visual arts practices (with readings 
drawn from philosophy, drama, theatre studies, performance studies, dance, film 
history and theory, television and media studies, art history, and visual 
culture studies), as well as addressing the interconnected development of these 
disciplines and the arts they seek to study since the early modern period.   
The course will also encourage
 students to think critically about social, political, intellectual and 
historical contexts.   Through the dissertation the student will work under the 
close supervision of an appropriate specialist and will have the opportunity to 
explore a chosen topic in depth.
