CLL 139 - (CC, LT) Performance, Protest and the Arab World

Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
This course explores cultural expressions of protest and the politics of contemporary performance in the Arab world. Examining works in their historical context, we consider the ways that poetry, theater, dance, music and performance art can constitute forms of political expression considered dangerous to powerful regimes. The course introduces different ways of reading and understanding various performance forms and their political stakes; considers the connections between different cultural forms; and explores the cultural dynamics of Arab protest and resistance movements. Works studied may include Syrian theater, Iraqi performance art, Tunisian hip-hop, Palestinian dance, and Egyptian colloquial poetry.
