Gender and Performance

This course investigated the question of gender as performance, gender in performance, performance of gender and performance as gendered. Or perhaps it is more accurate to say that this course will scratch the surface of the ongoing discourse on gender and performance, which is vast and extensive. Class participants read a wide range of literature, ranging from novels to comic books to theoretical essays, and examined them collaboratively in class, through discussions, workshops, and performances. This course (TPST 352) was taught by Natsu Onoda Power, Department of Performing Arts, as a Doyle Seminar (small upper-level classes that foster deepened student learning about diversity and difference through research and dialogue).
