This new class taught by the brilliant Jonathan Gonzalez spends each week looking at theater and performance created by BIPOC, differently abled, and other underrepresented groups. The syllabus features HIV/AIDS performance, Black Theatre, Middle Eastern Theatre, First Nations female artists, Asian American Theatre, and CRIP/Disabled artists. The class culminates in individual/experimental presentations. You won’t want to miss this.

This course will survey works of Theater, Film and Performance with a focus on new directions within
transnational contexts across time. Students will practice critical reasoning skills in a collective format
by responding to creative works of live and screen performance. By conducting in-class creative exercises, breakout groups, and circular dialogues, we will analyze how these materials, and their cultural context, resonate with our experiences.
