Mission of the Web Cuadernos
Hemispheric Institute for Performance and Politics identified a need to
develop content online that both crosscuts disciplinary boundaries and
invites further debate and discussion of performance and politics in the
Americas. This initiative arose from a belief that the strongest resource
on topics as complex and broad-reaching as these is one that is flexible
and responsive to new developments. Therefore, web cuadernos offer a set
of materials and concepts not as ends in themselves, but as points of
departure for discussion and exchange between a diverse group of invidivuals
in fields spanning the humanities, the social sciences and the arts. The
Insitute also houses a small collection of archival materials ranging
in scope from scholarly work on theories of performance, to video recordings
of the live performance, in several languages, from all over the Americas.
In order to make these materials both available to the public, and relevant
to larger contexts and debates, we have created web cuadernos. Interested
