Check out what the Center for World Performance Studies (CWPS) Student Advisory Board has organized for this year!
Human beings perform their identities everyday - in the classroom, on social media, on stage, in religious ceremony, even in choosing what to wear in the morning. On Sunday, November 11, from 12pm-4pm, the CWPS Student Advisory Board presents its first curated event around the theme of Performing Identity. Students are invited to engage in dialogue about social identities, participate in panel discussions about how students and/or performers across disciplines engage in performance of identity on and beyond our campus, and engage with performances by students and other local artists.
