About Performance and the Politics of Fear

Fear and anxiety have become so prevalent in public discourse, and personal and political relationships, as to have a profound impact on how people interact with one another as individuals and as democratic agents. Taking this as a broad starting point, this paper investigates the philosophical, political, and socio-cultural nature and ‘function’ of performances that attend to, intervene in, challenge, and/or (re)articulate discourses of fear.
