Performativity Research Group

Project: Other


Modernity is saturated with notions of performance and performativity. People can perform on stage, in an interview or lecture theatre. Organizations, institutions, nation states even global regions are often portrayed in terms of their performance. Performance itself can be viewed as institutionalised, ritualised, commodified even deified if the discourse pervading managing the public sector is anything to go by. This research group brings to bear the thinking about performance and performativity from interdisciplinary and post-disciplinary perspectives.
