Digital Feelings
Journal Issue Pages: 124 Volume 46, Number 2 Published: May 2016 An issue of Theater

This special issue, like the 2012 “Digital Dramaturgies” issue (Theater 42, no. 2), focuses on new forms of performance arising in response to new technologies. In “Digital Feelings,” guest co-editors Miriam Felton-Dansky and Jacob Gallagher-Ross investigate the emerging forms of affective experience engendered by digital technology, and theater artists’ strategic uses of these forms. How do we respond as live spectators to virtual pathos—and as virtual spectators to live pathos? The articles and performance pieces in this issue question and challenge the allure and disorientation of communication and affect in our digital age.
