Sensualities/Textualities & Technologies explores the interrelation of text, 
body and technology in performance.  In particular, it offers an interrogation 
of ?textualities?, that is, performance writing that is indebted to sensual 
?writings of the body? and at the same time looks to  new approaches offered by 
ongoing textual practices in physical and  visual performance which incorporate 
new and existing technologies. Please see below for contents list:
