Wed 1:25 PM – 4:15 PM
Students will engage with advanced critical theories of race, racial performativity, and racial representation in drama and performance. The course brings together ideas from a range of disciplines, including critical race theory and ethnic studies, to shed light on drama and performance. Sometimes the texts that are highlighted will bear directly on issues of race but the course will also look at how these approaches help us study materials where race is a subtext. The reading will generally highlight texts and performances by authors and artists of color.
