"Empirically grounded and theoretically rich, Exceptional Spaces brings a lively intellectual imagination to bear on a wide range of events and situations. Whether analyzing museums or tourist productions, slave auctions or murder, photographs or hygiene, orature or literature, law court or theater, the authors demonstrate the power of thinking performatively about history and historically about performance. This is performance studies at its best."--Barbara Kirshenblatt-Gimblett, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University
