    Research and Teaching Interests

    Performance studies, critical theory, participatory activist performance.

    I research how artists and activists attempt to make sense and negotiate the role art has on participants and its audiences. I focus primarily on performing political decent in contemporary US and the relationship between aesthetic and politics. I teach Performance Art Histories and various courses on cultural, anthropological and social theories pertaining to political practices of everyday life.
