Power, Resistance, and Performance
Students will explore, produce, and circulate theory about how the world works and how it might be possible to change it for the better.
As they read theory and case studies, students will ask: How do these ideas ask us to imagine the world otherwise? What is the role of such imaginings in resistance to various kinds of authoritarian structures? How might these ideas influence the analysis and creation of performance? How might participant-observer research best inform performance?
Special Topics Seminar in Performance Studies. Repeatable to a maximum of 32 cr hrs or 8 completions.
Thursdays, 2:30-5:15 PM Instructor: Dr. Ana Elena Puga
