The Doctoral Students' Research Group of Literary Theory is pleased to announce
The International Conference
Performance studies – literary studies – somaesthetics
With Professor Richard Shusterman as the keynote speaker
Performance studies, whose origins lie in the philosophy of language and theatre studies, have in the past decades become closely connected with a host of other disciplines, including anthropology, sociology, psychology, cultural studies, ethnography, cognitive science, and neurolinguistics. This phenomenon, sometimes aptly described as the performative turn, is in full swing at the moment, spreading both in the humanities and far beyond them.
