Anthropology and Performance: A Critical Conversation       



In celebration of the 60th anniversary of the arrival of Victor Turner at the 
University of Manchester
          

Keynote Speakers: 

 

Richard Schechner, Professor in Performance Studies at the Tisch School of the 
Arts, New York University   


Edith Turner, Honorary Doctor of Humanities and Lecturer at the University of 
Virginia
  

Friday 16 April 2010 at the Martin Harris Centre for Music and Drama, University 
of Manchester

The one-day conference aims to instigate innovative research dialogues 
between the disciplines of Social Anthropology and Drama/Performance Studies, 
through the pioneering scholarship of Victor Turner (Manchester School 
Anthropologist 1950- 1960). Celebrating the 60th anniversary of Turner's arrival 
in Manchester and the 90th anniversary of his birth, the conference will be 
introduced by his widow, anthropologist Edith Turner and his lifelong companion 
and collaborator in over 30 years of field research into ritual and performance. 
The event aims to transcend traditional disciplinary boundaries, generating new 
research between Social Anthropology and Drama within the University of 
Manchester as well as creating productive links with external research groups. 
Professor Richard Schechner, founder of Performance Studies, will present the 
continued relevance of Turner's work across these disciplines, and the 
conference panels are organised to develop new research synergies and 
creative approaches to practice-based and interdisciplinary research projects. 
The conference will launch and serve as a an intellectual input for a new 
practice-based PhD programme in Anthropology, Media and Performance (AMP), 
that will be jointly managed by the departments of Drama and Social 
Anthropology at the University of Manchester.

The conference is organised by the Centre for Applied Theatre Research, 
Centre for Screen Studies and Granada Centre for Visual Anthropology, and 
funded by SoSS, GCVA, Drama, and CIDRA at the University of Manchester.

The conference registration is now open

Attendance fee: 15
