Faculty Book: Maurya Wickstrom
Performance in the Blockades of Neoliberalism: Thinking the Political Anew
(Palgrave Macmillan, 2012)
This book ranges from refugee camps in Palestine to halting sites of the Irish Travellers in search of a new politics practiced through performance. Guided by visionary contemporary philosophy, with a focus on Alain Badiou, the book brings new, challenging, and affirmative vocabularies and theoretical tools to those interested in theatre and performance, and all those interested in the political possibilities of today. Its central argument is that we must not overlook the ways in which neoliberalism, specifically, shrinks our imaginations of what life might be. Maurya Wickstrom (Assoc. Prof., Staten Island) serves on the doctoral faculty in theatre.
