SFU President's Faculty Lecture Series
President's Faculty Lecturer: Dr. Peter Dickinson
Dr. Peter Dickinson is Professor in the Department of English at Simon Fraser University. He is the author, most recently, of World Stages, Local Audiences: Essays on Performance, Place and Politics (Manchester University Press, 2010).
How is a politician orating in parliament like an actor declaiming on stage? Why might it matter where each event takes place and who is in the audience? What can art and culture teach us about our everyday actions in this world? This lecture attempts to answer these and related questions by examining the aesthetics and material conditions of different kinds of performances, as well as their social and political consequences.
