One of those books you just keep going back to again and again

Today while working on my NCA paper I had one of those DAAAAA moments that everyone dreads.  As I have previously written I have been working through a personal tipping point as I have been writing this paper.  Well it hit me today that I have not gone back to my touchstone performance studies book to see what it might have to tell me, and as usual the answer is it has a lot to tell me that I can use in this paper.

My favorite performance studies book is:

Dailey, Sheron J. (ed.)  (1998). The Future of Performance Studies: Visions and Revisions. Annandale VA: National Communication Association.

This amazing volume never ceases to provide me thought provoking material.  I spent much of 2003-2004 academic year thinking about and presenting work that utilized just one of the chapters:

Langellier, Kristin M. (1998). Voiceless bodies, bodiless voices: The future of personal narrative performance. In Sheron J. Dailey (Ed.), The Future of Performance Studies: Visions and Revisions (pp. 207-213). Annandale VA: National Communication Association.

I need to reread the chapters I have tackled previously and finish the ones I have not yet abstracted.  If you are interested in performance studies I strongly recommend this edited volume as an entry point to the field.  I am no expert but with Dailey, Langellier, Bail, and Schechner I will improve my disciplinary vocabulary so that I can effectively use these theories to continue disciplinary boundary spanning as I look at adolescent populations online.
