City / Stage / Globe by D. J. Hopkins
Book DescriptionThis interdisciplinary study theorizes the interaction of individual performance and social space. Examining three categories of space - the urban, the theatrical, and the cartographic - this volume considers the role of performance in the production and operation of these spaces during a period in London's history defined roughly by the life of Shakespeare. City/Stage/Globe not only organizes a selection of plays, pageants, maps, and masques in the historical and cultural contexts in which they emerged, but also uses performance theory to locate the ways in which these seemingly ephemeral events contributed to lasting change in the spatial concepts and physical topograpy of early modern London.

Performance and the Global City, Hardback (October 2013)
Following the ground-breaking Performance and the City, this new volume explores what it means to create and experience urban performance - as both an aesthetic and a political practice - in the burgeoning world where cities are built by globalization and neoliberal capital.

Urban studies has long understood the city as a 'text'. What would it mean now to use performance to rethink that metaphor? Performance and the City queries the role theatre and performance play in urban policy, architecture, and civic history, while also exploring their important place in the memories created in the wake of urban trauma.
