CSGS Global Visiting Scholar 2017: Pablo Assumpção Barros Costa

pablo costaPablo Assumpção Barros Costa is Associate Professor of Dance and Performance at Universidade Federal do Ceará (UFC), in Fortaleza, Brazil. Since having received his PhD in Performance Studies from NYU in 2013, he has published various articles and book chapters on the politics and aesthetics of performance in Brazil, increasingly focusing his writing on forms of ethnographic sensuousness, and sensorial formations of queerness, particularly in relation to practices of bohemianism, nightlife culture, and erotic delinquency in Northeast Brazil. He has been invited to speak about Brazil’s queer sexual cultures in various universities, such as the Université Paris-Sorbonne, Universidade Estadual do Rio de Janeiro, Universidade Federal da Bahia, Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro, and HafenCity Universität Hamburg. He teaches and advises in the Undergraduate Program in Dance and the Graduate Program in Interdisciplinary Arts, both at UFC (Fortaleza, Brazil). His current research continues to extend his long-term experimental ethnography of queer friendship in Fortaleza to questions of care, mourning, and kinship.
