Theatre Arts & Performance Studies
Amanda Macedo Macedo
I am a PhD student in the Theatre Arts and Performance Studies program at Brown University. I hold a MA in Communication from the Graduate Program in Political and Social Sciences at UNAM in México. My MA thesis Widening the Gaze: An Encounter with Five Photographers in Mexico focuses on the performativity of the photographic image, visualities, temporalities, and counternarratives. I am currently interested in practices of resistance and refusal, disruptive pasts and alternative presents, the body and space in contexts of violence. My areas of research include performance studies, feminist theory, visual culture, decolonial studies, and postcolonial thought.
