CRS will help organize and fund a yearly Student Graduate Conference entirely curated and led by advanced graduate students from the three CRS departments. The first CRS Graduate Student Conference will take place April 5th and 6th, 2024. 

Sponsored by the Center for Research & Study at NYU’s Tisch School of the Arts, the graduate student conference is organized by the joint effort of students at the departments of Performance Studies, Art & Public Policy, and the Martin Scorsese Department of Cinema Studies. Together, we seek to consider the close relationship between unmaking and making, where assembly often involves destruction, and decomposition may imbricate a creative force. 

The Graduate Student Conference was also made possible with support from New York University's Tisch School of the Arts, Dean Allyson Green, and the Tisch Initiative for Creative Research.
