Zachary Price holds a Ph.D. in Theater Studies from University of California, Santa Barbara where he was a University of California President’s Dissertation Fellow.  Previously, he earned a M.F.A. in Theater Studies from the New School University, and a B.S. in Performance Studies from Northwestern University. Price’s current research investigates AfroAsian juncture and disjuncture through performance practices such as martial arts, jazz, and dance from 1945 to the present. This research studies as performance politics the appropriation and redeployment of Asian martial arts and aesthetic practices by Black urban martial artists, and puts those strategies in conversation with Asian and Asian American appropriation of Black American performance politics. Price finds in the convergence of these strategies moments of disruption of regimes and knowledge binaries, such that new possibilities for transracial, transcultural subjectivities and struggle become possible.
