Performative writing refers both to writing that compellingly addresses, conveys, and analyses performance practices, and writing that performs, or in other words, writing that makes something happen. In this course, students will read, discuss, analyze, and create performative writing. Through readings and writing exercises, students will explore various techniques for writing in an evocative and subjective way about the aesthetic and conceptual aspects of certain performance practices. They will also address the possibilities and challenges in writing about performance, especially on topics concerning bodily, gendered, and racial experiences. And most importantly they will identify and utilize the performative capacities of writing itself.
