Yelena Gluzman


Graduate Student


Yelena Gluzman is an experimental theater director and filmmaker, and works across disciplines of cognitive science, interaction studies, critical disability studies and feminist STS. Her recent projects investigate how "other minds" are staged in laboratory experiments, and trace the distributed communication ecologies of captioners who transcribe in real time for d/Deaf and Hard-of-hearing students. Her publications contribute to discussions on performance as research (PaR) and consider the promises of experimental reflexivity and 'research as theater' (RaT). She is a founding member of Ugly Duckling Presse, a founding editor of Emergency Index: An Annual Compendium of Performance Practice, and founding co-editor, with Matvei Yankelevich, of the Emergency Playscripts series.
