WGSS 59.07 Latinx Performance

This course offers a critical investigation of performance in the Americas through a queer and transgender/travesti lens. We explore specific social, political, and economic contexts in which artists are performing and interweave written texts with audio, visual, and other modes of doing theory. Our texts are interdisciplinary: we listen to music, watch films, do written performance responses, and read memoir, history, ethnography, manifesto, and critical theory. The course will be organized around various themes that can be transposed to many other areas of study. Creative and critical written assignments provide opportunities to develop self-reflexivity, writing and thinking skills, and making connections betwen our everyday lives and larger workings of power. Ultimately, the course invites students to think about how queer and trans/trava performance is imbricated with social justice artistic formations in the contemporary world.
