William W.  Lewis is a third year Ph.D. student in Theatre and Performance. He is a scholar and performance maker whose research focuses on the intersection of digital technologies/culture and performance spectatorship. He studies performance companies using alternative, postdramatic and devised forms of storytelling that implement site specificity, gaming, digital media, and social networking. His most recent project, Quantified Self, which was supported by a John S. and James L. Knight Foundation Prototype grant was developed with a team of computer scientists and engineers using participatory engagement to question the ethics of data collection. Will is currently the Graduate Student Representative for both the Performance Studies Focus Group and the Directing Focus Group in the Association of Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE). He has published in New Theatre Quarterly and Theatre Research International and is the founding Managing Co-Editor of the new e-journal PARtake: The Journal of Performance as Research published out of CU Boulder’s Department of Theatre and Dance.
