The verb “to perform” can be variously defined as “to carry out an action,” “to discharge a duty,” “to accomplish a task,” and “to present to an audience.” Interdisciplinary in nature, students explores performance in the context of the performing and media arts, as well as in the context of ritual, politics, and everyday life. Emphasizes the relationship between performance and race, gender, sexuality, and other vectors of identity: how are various types of difference enacted, articulated, and represented through performative acts?
