Simming: Participatory Performance and the Making of MeaningScott Magelssen 2014
These immersive environments in which spectator-participants engage in simulations of various kinds—or "simming"—are the subject of Scott Magelssen's book. His book lays out the ways in which simming can provide efficacy and promote social change through affective, embodied testimony. Using methodology from theater history and performance studies (particularly as these fields intersect with cultural studies, communication, history, popular culture, and American studies), Magelssen explores the ways these representational practices produce, reify, or contest cultural and societal perceptions of identity.
