OUT NOW: Performance Philosophy Vol 2, No 2 (2017)

We are delighted to announce that Vol 2.2 of the online journal, Performance Philosophy, has now been published.

The issue includes our Editorial composed out of replies to our open call for 1 sentence responses to the inauguration of T****.

The editors would be grateful for your support in sharing the Editorial, and indeed the links to the journal as a whole, to interested friends and colleagues, including those outside of academia.

Performance Philosophy is an emerging interdisciplinary field of thought, creative practice and scholarship. As an international, peer-reviewed, open access journal, Performance Philosophy publishes articles that interrogate what this field might be and what might be possible within it.

With thanks,

Laura Cull Ó Maoilearca
