Konferenz: Facing Drag in Popular Culture and Performing Arts (23.–25. Juni 2022)

23.06.2022 - 25.06.2022

Konferenz an der Universität für darstellende Kunst und Musik, mit Online-Teilnahme über Zoom

Drag, a key concept in Gender Studies, has been theorized as a practice of queering, of re-signifying. Against the backdrop of manifold articulations of colonialism and racism, this transdisciplinary conference aims at re-thinking "drag". It brings together scholars and artists from different parts of the globe to address, to historicize and to contextualize – to face – practices of othering and of othering and of mimesis in performing arts and in popular culture.

Organized by: Evelyn Annuß, Silke Felber, Julia Ostwald
