Performance Studies international, PSi# 26 on the theme of ‘Crises of Care: act respond engage’ will be held in Rijeka, Croatia, 7-11 July, 2020.

Crises of Care will take the form of six interweaving streams of research (sort of conferences-within-conference) and responses to contemporary issues.

  1. Listening
  2. Ends
  3. Materiality and Corporeality
  4. Neighborhoods
  5. Editing, Curating, Publishing
  6. Times of Power, Historical Paradigms

These will be curated by teams and feature presentations, break-out sessions, performances, discussions and other activities as organized by the curators of each stream.

Each day will feature the work of two streams along with sessions that bring the whole conference together.  Morning sessions will take place on the campus of the University of Rijeka and afternoon and evening sessions will take place downtown in theatre spaces, galleries and outdoor.  A focus in distributed knowledge and collective sharing of our work in and between streams will be a feature of the gathering.
