Performative Sites Symposium 2000 will examine the theoretical,
experiential, and pedagogical implications of performance artists' works
that use mechanical and electronic technologies. Recognizing that we live
in a culture that is increasingly dependent on technology, this symposium
will explore the varied means that artists, educators, and cultural
theorists use to expose, critique, and intervene in the ways that
technology is conceived. In doing so, we can begin to understand technology
as performative and embodied.

The symposium program presenters will include: Stelarc; Orlan; Guillermo
Gómez-Peña and Roberto Sifuentes; N. Katherine Hayles; Richard Coyne;
Amelia Jones; Peggy Phelan; Goat Island; Faith Wilding; Drew Leder;
Allucquere Rosanne Stone; Madeline Grumet; Cheri Gaulke; Eduardo Kac; Maria
Fernandez; Dan Collins; Simon Penny; Noah and Seth Riskin; Susan Squier;
Richard Doyle; osseus labyrint; Leslie Hill and Helen Paris; Paul Kaiser
and John Mitchell; Richard Loveless; and several others.

All of these participants have been invited to address technological
culture and its impact on the human body and identity. The symposium is a
comprehensive four-part program with no concurrent sessions that includes a
performance series, lectures, panel discussions, and workshops.
