'Hard Graft: Performance, Labour and Value' Queen’s University Belfast | May 28th and 29th, 2021 Convened by Dr Aoife McGrath and Dr Shonagh Hill
The annual conference of the Irish Society for Theatre Research considers the intersection of performance, labour and value. How is labour valued in theatre and performance scholarship and practice? Whose labour gets recognised, and whose labour remains invisible? The conference considers these questions along two interrelated tracks: the external, societal/institutional values placed on performance practices, texts, artists and research; and the value systems in operation within theatre and performance practice and scholarship.
