300836 Performing Protest/Performing Power: Practice as Research In Gender Studies and Performance (S) (WiSe 2020/2021)

Inhalt, Kommentar

What is the relationship between the performances of Beyoncé, Jesse Owens, and Thích Quảng Đứ?... Protest! Each of these cultural figures put their bodies on the line, by using protest as performance to challenge power structures, address social equity, and influence social change. Case Studies may include how: How the Klu Klux Klan and the Westboro Baptist Church use protest strategies and religious iconography to terrorize marginalized groups; Jesse Owens’s silent and reverent raised fist at the 1968 Olympics; Beyoncé’s halftime Superbowl performance of her song ‘Formation’ referencing Activism and the Black Panthers. Throughout the class students will be asked to place themselves in a historical continuum where intersections of class, race, gender, and sexuality are considered. Class assignments will include, but are not limited to the well-framed selfie, YouTube confessional videos, response papers, and pop-up performances. Religion through the performative, that is, practices over belief, will be a key theme running through the class.
Key theoretical premises:
Phenomenology (queer)
Radical Standpoint Epistemologies
Theory Generation (liberatory practices)
Practice as Research

Practical applications
This class will work through several apllied research methodologies (particpatory ehtnogrpahy, digital story telling, and embodied inquiry synthesis). This class will focus on materality and short projects. Some assignmets will be collobrative. How do we do impactful research in the time of COVID?

Please note
This seminar is offered through the International Guest Lectureship Program. Dates and times will be announced as soon as we can clarify whether the seminar will be able to take place digitally in the case that Prof. McMillan cannot travel to Bielefeld.
