ryanplatt.net: ephemera on performance and academics
“Performance studies is a border discipline, an interdiscipline, that cultivates the capacity to move between structures, to forge connections, to see together, to speak with instead of simply speaking about or for others.”
-Dwight Conquergood, “Of Caravans and Carnivals: Performance Studies in Motion”
As a starting assistant professor, I relegated this blog to the very margins of my academic activities for the last few years. As of now (july 2013), I have resolved to maintain a semblance of discourse on this site. It occurs to me that a good blog is an intelligent diary that generates compelling thoughts without the heavy labor of argument. All of this is to merely say: this site is again live.
(Whatever “liveness” may be.)
