General description

Gender, Media, & Performance

Tuesdays 16 - 19; 22.3.2016 - 3.5.2016

Seminar Room E325

This course explores intersections among contemporary articulations of gender and mediated forms of performance.  The course draws heavily on queer theory and performance theory.  Course materials will include assigned readings and online media.   We will look at work by North American artists including T.L. Cowan, Ivan Coyote, Vaginal Davis, Dynasty Handbag, Sharon Hayes, M Lamar, Kalup Linzy, Erin Markey, Coco Fusco, Guillermo Gomez-Peña, Elizabeth Price, Cindy Sherman, and Rae Spoon.  In addition to written responses to course material, this course includes a creative component.  Students will work on media projects (digital stories, site specific mediated happenings, group presentations on selected artists, and a wordpress site) on topics of their choice related to course themes.  No previous media production experience is necessary for this course.

This course combines lecture/discussion, critical response, and creative project work. 
Students will show media work in class on assigned days, followed by class feedback.  All readings and other required media will be posted on a class blog.
