TISCH SCHOOL CLUSTER HIRE INITIATIVE

REPRESENTATION IN THE ARTS MATTERS

Matters of representation lie at the center of research and practice in the arts today.  The question of how to stand for, speak for, and depict the lives and beliefs of oneself and others is a pressing concern in the arts education curriculum. Who gets represented? Who creates the representations?  Who gets left out and why? Who or what controls this depiction? What does it mean to be unrepresented? (Or overrepresented, for that matter) How does political representation align, or not, with representational diversity in culture? 

These questions unify disparate areas of creative work, from dance to documentary. They also span multiple fields of scholarly practice. The proposed faculty hiring cluster is an innovative partnership among departments within Tisch School of the Arts, and will create a nexus of practice-led research within the School. It seeks out scholars and practitioners whose work analyzes intersections of race, gender, and identity, and shifts perception through innovative strategies of representation.
