The GSA of the York Theatre and Performance Studies Department presents a new research event: Performance. Discuss. 

Drawing on the cabaret format, this research-focused event will provide performance studies researchers (from across disciplines) with an opportunity to give short presentations on their research projects in a fun, fast-paced format.

We want to know about your performance related research - and we want to discuss it with you!

Please submit your proposals to by December 10, 2014.

Your submission must include:

  • 150 words to describe your research topic
  • 50 words to situate yourself
  • An image, related to your research topic
  • 40 words to describe and/or situate that image.

We're interested in your research.

The day will consist of two sessions:

First, 15-minute presentations and formal feedback (for those who want to present their work in a longer format)

Second, rapid-fire 3-minute presentations in a cabaret style format (to facilitate the development of a concise and accessible description of your research project).

There will be snacks, smart people to discuss your work with, and - last but not least - some dancing!
