American LGBT and its Global Other: Performance as Method

2200M [CRN: 25778]

This graduate seminar begins by asking how one comes to an understanding of transnational queerness using performance as a method for its inter-referencing practices. This course will use this familiar conjuncture or gridlock as a way to formulate alternative epistemologies or comparativities about queer performance. Performance is construed broadly, from new media, film, theatre, ethnography, music, art and dance to festivals, protests and parades. Thinkers, writers and artists from various parts of the world, including those in exile or different diasporas would be considered.
