Abstract

Performative Body Spaces: Corporeal Topographies in Literature, Theatre, Dance, and the Visual Arts is an edited collection derived from a workshop series at the University of British Columbia in 2008. It showcases fourteen authors within under two hundred and twenty pages of argumentative text. Essays range from a slim six-pages of argument, through to no more than thirteen, this being editor Markus Hallensleben's dense discussion of corporeal theory and its uneven take up in international scholarship. Given such fearsome constraints of word length, one is sympathetic to those authors who have left their bibliographic information thin on the ground
