No 16 (2021): Performance and Radical Kindness

Edited by Emma Willis, Alys Longley and Victoria Wynne-Jones 

Inspired by the Universtiy of Auckland research initiative 'Agencies of Kindness', this issue of Performance Paradigm investigates what it means to “do” radical kindness. The editors have curated 17 distinctive research articles cohered around 'how kindness performed goes beyond 'simply ameliorating suffering' to 'challend the very structures that presage unkindness' (Willis 2021: 1).

Authors include: Sarah Burton, Miriam Haughton, Lisa Samuels, Erik Ehn, Astrid N. Korporaal, Daniel Johnston, Elena García-Martín, Katharine E. Low, Sue Mayo, Alys Longley, Paula Guzzanti, Renée Newman, Sarah Harper, Rea Dennis, Kate Hunter
