On Trans/Performance

21.5 On Trans/Performance 
Deadline: 11 December 2015

This special issue of Performance Research comes out of a three-year-long research initiative linked to both Encuentro Montréal (2014) and Trans-Montréal, the Montréal node of Performance Studies International’s 2015 series of events under the rubric ‘Fluid States: Performances of Unknowing’. The project is theoretically and conceptually broad, linking the ‘trans-’ (implying exceeding, moving towards, changing; going across, over or beyond) to the performative (saying as doing, or that which performs something while articulating it); however, contributors are encouraged to develop the notion of trans/performance in relation to sharp and local themes, as well as potentially larger theoretical concerns.
