In addition to collaborative course offerings, each year the Department of Performing Arts and Davis Performing Arts Center engage deeply with programs and departments across campus.  Examples include the 2013 launch of the Laboratory for Global Performance and Politics with the School of Foreign Service, the Tennessee Williams Centennial Festival with American Studies in 2010, the collaboration with the Jesuit Community including a 2009 performance of a long-lost 18th-century oratorio, the Children of Abraham: Festival of Interfaith Arts with Program for Jewish Civilization in 2007.
