2022 Session: Mellon School: The Final Session

JUNE 7-17, 2022

In June 2022, we'll be celebrating the 12th--and final--year of the Mellon School. Our capstone session, to be held over two weeks in a hybrid online/in-person format, will be a celebration of the past twelve years and of the 400 participants and faculty who have made the Mellon School into what it is. This final session will allow all of us to reconnect and take stock: how have theater and performance studies changed over the past twelve years? How has our work evolved, both individually and collectively? What might the next twelve years look like? This last session will depend on the willingness and interest of alumni to come back virtually or physically (or both) to reenact the past, report on the present, and envision the future. Please come!

Mellon School 2022 is open only to past participants and faculty of Mellon School.
