Duke University Press and NYU’s Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics Collaborate on Scalar Projects

 

Duke University Press has just announced the launch of two new Scalar works published in collaboration with the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics at New York University.

Dancing with the Zapatistas, edited by Diana Taylor and Lorie Novak, explores the history, culture and life of Zapatistas through essays, photo essays, interviews, as well as spoken word and theatrical performances. The work offers insights into the workings of the Zapatista Council on Good Government; the murals in the Caracoles; the Escuelita; Subcomandante Marcos; and Zapatista music and celebrations.

What is Performance Studies?, edited by Diana Taylor and Marcos Steuernagel, seeks to explore the depths of the field by posing the title’s question to thirty leading scholars from seven different countries throughout the Americas and then documenting their answers. The book features video interviews, transcribed, translated, and subtitled into English, Spanish, and Portuguese, accompanied by short essays.
