The Future Advisory Board (FAB) of Performance Studies international (PSi) seeks two additional board members. The new board members will serve for three conference cycles–PSi#24 in 2018; PSi#25 in 2019; and PSi#26 in 2020–with organizational work to begin August 1st, 2017. The new board members will join existing board members (Felipe Cervera, João Florêncio, Eero Laine, Shawn Chua, and Evelyn Wan) in intensive collaborative work on projects, events, and opportunities that will further bring together graduate students and early career scholars and artists worldwide and increase the visibility of the diversity of performance studies. FAB meets in person every year at the annual conference and is otherwise in regular contact through digital means.
Nominees must be:
- current PSi Members;
- an emerging artist, graduate student, or junior faculty member within three years of receiving a terminal degree;
- available via digital communications for regular meetings and project updates (most times of the year, this means responding to email and other messages; however, during busy times, this could entail a Skype meeting once per week);
- willing to engage with collaborative and collective creative and intellectual processes; and
- committed to diversifying performance studies and building a wide network of junior and emerging scholars and artists.
Those interested should nominate themselves to the board by submitting a CV and a cover letter that details reasons for wanting to join the board, availability for upcoming conferences, and ideas for forwarding the aims and ideals of PSi and FAB. Self nominations should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by July 1st, 2017. Shortlisted candidates may be invited for a short Skype interview. All inquiries are welcome.
