This essay re-examines Dwight Conquergood's important 1985 article, “Performing as a Moral Act,” in light of both general sociopolitical changes and practical pedagogical experiences in a Performing Literature classroom. In particular, it addresses the error of commitment Conquergood calls the “Enthusiast's Infatuation” and explores how student performers may be encouraged to think and act beyond this position.
