Performance Studies Network International Conference 2020/2021

University of Huddersfield, 1-4 July, 2021 (Rescheduled)

As perhaps all of you will have been expecting, we have had to make the difficult decision to postpone the Performance Studies Network Conference this year.

The good news is that we are able to host the conference in 2021 instead. So please do hold the 1st-4th July 2021 in your diaries. The conference will be held at the University of Huddersfield as planned for this year. We will honour our commitment to all accepted papers and presentations so please assume that arrangements will be carried over from this year to next.

More details will be released through the usual networks over coming months. For now, though this year has its challenges, I greatly look forward to welcoming you to the University of Huddersfield in 2021.


The University of Huddersfield is proud to host the 2020 Performance Studies Network Conference. We look forward to welcoming delegates from across the globe to share research about performance, including practice-based research, research-dynamic performances, and much more. We can promise a range of presentations and formats, covering diverse genres, methodologies, practices and periods of study, across our numerous lecture and seminar rooms, concert venues, archive and exhibition centre, and other spaces.
