Performance, Practice & Interactivity
At Maynooth University we have a strong focus of research on human activities that have creativity at their heart.
We create and analyse the various modes of performance and practice, and we seek to comprehend all of their manifestations. This includes, but is not limited to, artistic enterprise embodied in works of literature, visual, scenic, musical and interactive arts. We explore the cultural and historical environments that in turn nurture these and other human endeavours.
Through our scholarship, we analyse the inherent interactivity that sustains and characterises their origin and legacy and which will shape the cultural richness of the future.
Maynooth University is an ideal Host Institution for a Marie Skłodowska Curie Individual Fellowship and this cluster is interested in finding potential applicants. Find a mentor below or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The first meeting of the performance cluster will take place on Thursday, 11 September at 12noon in the NIRSA Conference Room 2.31, Iontas Building.
Dr Martin O'Leary and Dr Ryan Molloy have their works performed in Japan and Canada in November.
