Spectatorship and Audience

Spectatorship and Audience

This working group invites participants to consider what it is to be a spectator in 2017, in all the different spaces where spectatorship occurs, including art, politics, architecture, education, new media, and religion. By working across disciplines, how might we learn from and cross-fertilize among methods used to study spectatorship? “Spectatorship & Audience” will engage in an interdisciplinary investigation of witnessing and participating in culture. Once per month, one of our members will create a reading list and lead a discussion about their research. These meetings will occur at UofT Scarborough, University College and OISE. We will work towards publishing an essay collection about contemporary issues in spectatorship research, as well as preparing for the second year of our seminar program at the Canadian Association for Theatre Research’s annual conference.
