• Dissident Acts

  • Overview

    Dissident Acts locates itself at an interdisciplinary node of scholarship that focuses on embodied politics and decolonial practices. Books in the series reflect the dramatic shifts taking place in performance and politics across the broad scholarship on the Americas. The series values fresh voices and experimental approaches while publishing innovative, powerful research that imagines futures outside the colonial condition. Bringing a global perspective to performance studies and taking the field in new directions, Dissident Acts explores the changing political structures, global movements, and social ecologies that subvert power relations in the Americas and beyond.
