Performing Knowledge: What Does Learning Feel Like?

at the Martin E. Segal Theatre Center in New York City

Thursday 12 December 2019

The Martin E. Segal Center presented Performing Knowledge: What Does Learning Feel Like? livestreamed on the commons-based peer produced HowlRound TV network at howlround.tv on Thursday 10 December 2019.

What can knowledge feel or look like? How might it move us? What might the emotional and aesthetic effects of knowledge be, in addition to the cognitive? How does one know or come to know? What place do repetition, gesture, rhythm, mimesis, rehearsal, meditation, and travel have in knowledge?

Now in its second year, Performing Knowledge is a one-day festival of knowledge performances that accommodate and celebrate contradiction, that find their meaning in specific social contexts, and that may end with a question mark. Prominent scholars and graduate students across disciplines come together to reframe research and knowledge as happy human and intrinsically social occasions.

Co-Produced by Margit Edwards and Cory Tamler.
