The Performance Studies Network Conference 2018 offers a rich combination of continuing the traditions of earlier PSN conferences with striking out into new geographical and cultural territory.  Continuing and expanding the international scope of PSN, it also proposes an event with a distinctively Nordic flavour.

Having settled into accommodation in the centre of Oslo, delegates will find easy and quick transport links to the campus of the Norwegian Academy of Music (NMH).  There, they will be quickly be immersed in the opening conference discussions followed by a welcome reception and opening concert.

In the days that follow, the aim is to combine thematically-organised presentations with opportunities for networking in the social spaces adjacent to the Levin and Lindemann Halls of NMH.  An expert panel and ‘town hall’ meeting will conclude the conference programme on the final day.  Throughout the conference, there will be a range of live concert events, and a social highlight will be a barbeque laid on in the grounds of NMH, with the more formal Conference Dinner taking place the following day.
