Course information provided by the Courses of Study 2022-2023.

Is feminism a set of personal experiences, political ideas, or the ideology that women and men are equal? How has feminism been represented in the public sphere? How does feminist performance contribute to our understandings of identity, power, and community? Grounded in a study of dramatic literature and theatrical spectacles, this course discusses how women in theater contribute to and challenge prevalent understandings of history, gender identity, and masculinist ideas of power. With an emphasis on in-class discussions and peer editing, this class will foster and enhance each student's ability to produce coherent, concise, persuasive prose in the form of critical arguments. Students will analyze examples of performance through critical texts from fields of performance studies, gender and sexuality studies, and critical race theory.
