Exploring the broad field of media and performance

The research group Media and Performance approaches subjects in her field of study from a historical and comparative perspective, with a focus on the intricate relationship between technologies, expressions and forms, and participants, users or publics.

Within Utrecht University's research in the field of media and performance, questions about identity, participation, cultural memory and heritage are key. Furthermore, our researchers deploy a specific focus on historically situated and location-based, changing processes of cultural communication and signification.

You can address us to analyse or evaluate media and performative processes. Also, we often collaborate with makers in the creative industry and are able to work with them on dramaturgy, design and concepts.

Areas of expertise: digital media | media comparison | theatre | dance | cinema | television | mobile media | interface | social media | games | online platforms | visual culture | transmedia | digital humanities
