Join us Wednesday, September 20, at 6 pm, for a Dunkerley Dialogue with artist Paula Wilson, whose solo exhibition Paula Wilson: Toward the Sky’s Back Door is on view through December, and Skidmore Associate Professor of Theater and Department Chair Lisa Jackson-Schebetta.

Dunkerley Dialogues pair Skidmore professors with artists in a conversation format, which is often a catalyst for new connections and understandings across disciplines, and can spark new ideas for all participants. Dunkerley Dialogues are made possible by a generous gift from Michele Dunkerley ’80.

This event is free and open to the public.

Her research centers on histories and theories of performance and theatre in the Americas, Latin America, and Spain. Her work as a teacher and a scholar is deeply informed by her training and professional experience as a director, devisor, dramaturg, and voice and movement teacher. Jackson-Schebetta’s first book, Traveler, There is No Road: Theater, The Spanish Civil War, and the Decolonial Imagination in the Americas (Iowa, 2017) examines interwar Spanish and English language theater in the United States and trans-historical configurations of race, activism and belonging. Her second book explores intersections between peace-making and performance in contemporary Colombia. She has published in Theatre Survey, Modern Drama, New England Theatre Journal, the Journal of American Drama, and Theatre, and others.
