Between Spaces Symposium

Between Spaces Symposium


Between Spaces Symposium,
University of Chichester, June 29th – 30th 2017

The symposium will take place on Thurs 29th June, 12.30 - 7.00 p.m and Friday 30th June 10.00 a.m - 5.30pm.

This two-day symposium develops cross-disciplinary dialogues instigated via the University of Chichester’s ‘Performing Place’ symposium series (2013-15) in which human-environment and place-based engagements were explored by artists and academics from the fields of dance, human geography, anthropology, architecture, theatre and cultural studies.

Between Spaces extends interdisciplinary discourse and develops shared interests in everyday performativity through further exploring how lived environments are performed through everyday acts and how environments perform themselves through tropes of ruralism, tourism, civic organisation, representation, power and control.
