Parergon Performance Pop-up – ANZAMEMS Conference

Call for participants for the Parergon Performance Pop-up! 

The “Parergon Performance Pop-up!” is a series of staged readings curated around the theme Women and Agency. This event is directed by the Parergon early career committee and will be performed live at the 2024 ANZAMEMS conference in Christchurch, New Zealand.  

A series of readers will perform 3–5-minute segments of medieval or early modern poetry, prose or drama that engages with the theme. As this is a staged reading, performers are not expected to costume or memorise their segments. Performers are welcome to propose duologues if they are able to rehearse with their partner in advance of the conference. 

Participants with performance or public speaking experience who would like to participate in this event are invited to contact Anna-Rose ( to register their interest and receive further information. We look forward to hearing from you!
