As part and parcel to American Culture Studies’ continued efforts to bring the vibrancy of our community to the web, the Media Archive will include a growing body of audio and visual material. Culled from interviews with visiting scholars, recordings of AMCS events hosted throughout the semester, and features from program initiatives, the Media Archive rounds out amcs.wustl’s digital presence. Our aim is to offer site visitors a way to hear and see community inquire about and debate issues critical to American Life.

Jasmine Mahmoud’s work examines how aesthetic and geographic experiences entangle, with attention to how race, policy, and processes of urban displacement interact with contemporary performance practices such as experimental theater, dance, social practice work, performance art, and music. Her research and teaching interests also include black aesthetics, acts of citizenship, and urban ethnography. She completed her PhD in Performance Studies at Northwestern University in 2016. Her dissertation “Avant-Garde Frontiers in the Austere City: Political Economies of Artistic Placemaking in the Post-Millennial United States” investigated the trend of early 21st century experimental theater practices taking place in urban margins in New York, Chicago, and Seattle, three arts-rich cities.
