About Working Papers

Performance of the Real Working Papers is a space accessible here for the circulation of dialogues, provocations and ideas arising from Performance of the Real events. The work here is drawn particularly from postgraduate and early career researchers and is intended to showcase the energy and dynamism generated by the various symposia, conferences and discussions we have organised.

All material here is double blind peer reviewed and rigorously assessed before posting. However, this site is also intended as space for experimentation and the constitution of discussion. Alongside the 'live' content are formatted, downloadable PDF versions of each post. These are located at the bottom of the post.

This site incorporates multimedia content and hosts work from multiple disciplines - each of whom tackle the compelling notion of the 'real' in lively, and exciting ways. Working Papers will be regularly updated as fresh work arises and we encourage thoughtful, critical engagement with the material through the 'comments' function. Currently this page is managed and edited by Rosemary Overell and Sarah Thomasson.
