This course asks students to seriously consider how gender is performed both in their lives and in the world around them. Gender as Performance is designed for students with some experience and a definite interest in Gender Studies and Performance Studies who wish to explore gender identity through critical response to an ever-growing, interdisciplinary body of scholarship that includes scholarly books and essays, films, (auto)ethnographic performance, and creative non-fiction. This course requires close readings of key texts and applied critique of these texts through class participation, short analysis papers, and collaborative projects.
