Performance in the Americas

We are dedicated to expanding research on performance studies in the American hemisphere.

This working group aims to strengthen and expand a network of scholars, practitioners and activists of the UC Berkeley campus community who are working in the area of Performance research in Latin/o America. Given our current placement within several departments across campus from Spanish and Portuguese, Ethnic Studies, Art Practice, Anthropology and Theater, Dance and Performance Studies, we recognize the need for an interdisciplinary space that would allow a focused group discussion on performance and live art practices in the Americas.

Critical Urbanisms

A group promoting critical conversations about forms of knowledge and modes of academic inquiry in studies of the city and urban phenomena.

Critical Urbanisms is an interdisciplinary and cross-campus group, based at the University of California Berkeley, that promotes critical conversations about forms of knowledge and modes of academic inquiry in the study of the city and urban phenomena. The group seeks to explore and interrogate theories of power, capital, and inequality in cities around the globe. Through conversations with acclaimed academics, workshops, symposia, and student panels, we bring together Bay Area scholars to develop novel practices of knowing, studying, and representing the city.

The UC Berkeley Latin American History Working Group is a group of graduate students and faculty interested in Latin American history seeking to build an intellectual community of historians and historically-minded scholars from other disciplines. We host twice-monthly working group sessions with presentations of article-length papers or chapter selections from larger projects near publication from advanced students and professors that contribute to discussions of important themes, questions, and theoretical concerns in Latin American history.
