Class Subtitle Performing Race and Citizenship in 21st Century USA
Description This seminar investigates the role performance plays in forming our understandings of racial identity and U.S. citizenship. How does performance both shape and reject what "American" means in the 21st Century? How do particular genres of performance (re)claim who is, or is not, a "Real American?" Throughout the semester we will unpack and begin to answer these broad questions by engaging in critical race and performance theories/practices, addressing such topics as national borders, health, diaspora, sex, history, and political protest. Assignments will have written and creative components. Students will hone the necessary skills to analyze performance and gain foundational understandings of theories and methods pertinent to the fields of performance, critical race, and feminist/queer theories. This course fulfills the second writing requirement
