Performance Research Volume 11 Issue 4

Digital Resources

Issue editors: Ric Allsopp & Scott deLahunta

ISBN: 978-0-415-40511

This issue, in a volume that explores the terms under which performance is debated, discussed, conducted, written about and constructed, focuses on the uses of digital resources. Drawing its material from current critical and practice-based research employed by artists and scholars working with performance in the arts and humanities, the issue will provide a constellation of work that furthers the debate on the influence of digital media on the generation of scholarly and practice-based research, and asks how digital resources have changed ways of working. The issue and its DVD supplement will be compiled and edited in association with the 2006 Digital Resources in the Humanities and Arts (DRHA) conference and will include contributions from N. Katherine Hayles, Roy Ascott, and Stelarc among others."
