Please join us for a lunchtime discussion with Julie Burelle, Assistant Professor in Theatre.
Julie Burelle holds a PhD from the joint program in Drama and Theatre at UC San Diego and UC Irvine. Originally from Quebec, Canada, Julie has studied and taught theatre on both coasts of Canada and of the United States. She earned a B.A. in Theatre from the University of Toronto. Julie’s recent research focuses on how questions of First Nations sovereignty, cultural identity, and nationhood are negotiated through performances in the particular context of Quebec, a province whose national aspirations have often occupied center stage. Her case studies include theatrical and cinematic performances, First Nations hip hop, and political and land-based protests. Julie has presented her work in multiple international settings and her work has appeared in Theatre Forum, in Theatres of Affect in Canada, and will soon be published in TDR: The Drama Review. As a practitioner, Julie works in collaborative settings and has served as a dramaturg for plays, dance projects and for documentary films.
The conversation with Dr. Burelle will be moderated by Fernando Dominguez Rubio, Assistant Professor of Communication.
This event is part of an ongoing series of Monday lunches made possible by a gift from Gay Lester. Lunch will be provided. Please RSVP.
