„Performativity“ refers to the emergent, ambiguous, and
unexpected dimensions of any performance in the social,
political, and artistic arena. The volume presents case
studies of performativity in: linguistic translation; the
city as stage of political performances; the theatricality
of courtrooms and documentary film; contemporary theatre’s
political inheritance; and the historically punctured fabric
of festival time. Its contributions to performance and
theatre studies, sociology and folklore, and German studies,
reflect this concept in a transdisciplinary and
transatlantic dialogue.

A. Dana Weber is an Assistant Professor of
