Alyson Campbell, from Victorian College of the Arts, The University of Melbourne
is Monash CTP’s next guest as part of the Research Seminar Series
She will be talking to us on…
GL RY—A (w)hole Lot of Woman Trouble: HIV Dramaturgies and Feral Pedagogies
@ Drama Theatre, Performance Arts Centre, 55 Scenic Drive, Monash Uni, Clayton
Monday 11th September @ 12noon
Her talk will be based on a paper she has written which has generated a lot of interest.
This paper stems from a practice-as-research performance installation, GL RY, led by the author in a public square throughout the 2014 International AIDS Conference in Melbourne and then in a new form in Belfast, 2016.
The paper argues that there is a gaping hole in representation of women living with HIV in contemporary performance in countries like Australia. She proposes two main concepts: conversation – in form as well as process – is a key part of a contemporary dramaturgy of HIV;
building on that, this dramaturgy of conversation might be productively merged with queer ideas of kinship and family to form what she is calling ‘feral pedagogies’: a queerly de-domesticated idea of how we teach and learn, in this case about HIV.
Sounds like an exceptional Research Seminar and one not to miss out on.
No RSVP required.

Alyson’s research, artistic practice as a director, teaching and activism converge around gender and sexuality, particularly queer performance and dramaturgies and contemporary representations of HIV and AIDS.

She co-founded the Queer Futures Working Group for the International Federation of Theatre Research (IFTR), which is a vibrant network developing the work of queer performance scholarship.

She is committed to developing modes of practice led/as research throughout her teaching at all levels.
