A scholar and artist, Dr. Ioana B. Jucan works across the fields of theatre and performance studies, media studies, and philosophy. Her current research follows several different yet intersecting threads: global capitalism's mechanisms of simulation and dissimulation; knowledge and value production in the age of "Big Data" and "post-truth"; and performance, authenticity, and disinformation. She is a member of the Beyond Verification international team linked to the Digital Democracies Group at Simon Fraser University. Her scholarly writing has appeared in journals (Performance PhilosophyTDR: The Drama ReviewparallaxRevista Caracteres; and others) and edited volumes (Remain; Hello, I'm ELIZAAdorno and Performance; This and That -- Essays in Live Art and Performance Studies). Jucan’s artistic work spans theatre directing, playwriting, and multimedia performance, and has been performed internationally. Several of her plays are collected in her book, Cosmology of Worlds Apart (NY: O Balthazar Press, 2017).
