    Jennifer Schlueter

    Profile

    Jen makes performances that investigate the limits and the possibilities of the archive, that revel in retelling and remixing, and that challenge fair use, copyright, and creative transformation.

    A director, deviser, writer, and producer, Jen has seen her work produced at venues like Little Theatre (Seattle), Cleveland Public Theatre, American Theater Company (Chicago), Kranzberg Center (St. Louis), Wexner Center for the Arts, 59E59 (New York), Tristan Bates (London), and on BBC Radio 4. Her scholarship has been published in leading journals including TDR, Theatre Journal, and Theatre Survey. She was named an Ohio Arts Council Individual Excellence Award winner in 2019. For ten years, she facilitated the Lab Series, a student-driven, department-nurtured performance research laboratory that supported over 100 works in a nine year period.

    Previously a tenure-track professor at the University of Oregon and then tenured at The Ohio State University, where she was named a Ratner Distinguished Teacher, Jen comes to The New School from Columbus College of Art & Design. There, she served as the Associate Provost and Dean of Academics, responsible for driving the strategic development and transformation of undergraduate and graduate degrees across shared curricular models, as well as youth, adult enrichment, and career development programs. As part of this work, she was instrumental in launching the Women of Color Equity Design Institute as a collaboration amongst CCAD, Zora's House, the Women's Fund of Central Ohio, and JP Morgan Chase.

    In addition to teaching for the School of Drama, Jen is Vice Provost for Academic Affairs at The New School. In this role, she manages, implements, and improves institution-wide academic affairs processes in academic policy, academic integrity, academic standing, and academic scheduling, and leads initiatives to evaluate and better align academic affairs areas with university mission and vision. The same skills that she honed as a performance maker—in collaboration and in storytelling, as well as in a commitment to wonder, delight, and joy—ground her approach as an academic leader.
