The Department of Communication, Film, and Theatre is thrilled to announce that kt shorb will join the faculty this coming fall! Professor shorb comes to us from the University of Texas where they are completing a Ph.D. in the Performance as Public Practice program. Their research focuses on how queer people of color performers create temporal pockets that can only be described as time travel. In Austin, Professor shorb is the producing artistic director of the Generic Ensemble Company, an ensemble that makes the invisible visible through bold, socially relevant, body-centered theatre. Professor shorb also holds a B.M. in Composition from Oberlin Conservatory of Music and an M.A. in Radio-Televison-Film from The University of Texas at Austin.
Welcome Professor kt shorb!
