    •  Modes of performance-making: the ongoing search for alternative modes of work

    •  Identity and performance: going beyond oneself in contemporary contexts

    •  Theorising collaboration: matters of authorship in a networked age

    •  Collaboration across disciplinary and cultural boundaries
