Infectious rhythm : metaphors of contagion and the spread of African culture by Barbara Browning ( Book )
8 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 332 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Barbara Browning follows the trail of ""infectious rhythm"" from the ecstatic percussion of a Brazilian carnival group to the eerily silent video image of the LAPD beating a man like a drum. Throughout, she identifies the metaphoric strain of contagion which both celebrates the diasporic spread of African culture, and serves as the justification for its brutal repression. The essays in this book examine both the vital and violent ways in which recent associations have been made between the AIDS pandemic and African diasporic cultural practices, including religious worship, music, dance

Interview with Barbara Browning what is performance studies? ( )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Interview with Barbara Browning, conducted by Diana Taylor, director and founder of the Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics. This interview is a part of a series curated by the Hemispheric Institute, articulated around the question 'What is Performance Studies?' The series aims to provide a multifaceted approach to the often difficult task of defining the coordinates of both a field of academic study as well as a lens through which to assess and document cultural practice and embodied behavior. The contingent definitions documented in this series are based on the groundbreaking experiences and the scholarly endeavors of renowned figures in contemporary performance studies and practice
Hello there, stranger: The performance and politics of intimacy and belonging by Nicole Lyn DeBlosi ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Using Performance Studies to read notions of play, witnessing, and newness into Western liberal political philosophy, I examine three case studies of queer intimacy (queer in their challenging stance toward dominant ideas about intimacy): (1) temporary, erotic friendships between persons of "unequal" status; (2) children's unknowable intimacies with their dolls; and (3) humans' connections to animals. Art objects and written works under investigation include: Samuel Delany's Times Square Red, Times Square Blue, Neil Bartlett's Ready to Catch Him ... Should He Fall, Shelley and Pamela Jackson's The Doll Games, Joseph Beuys' I Like America and America Likes Me, and the writings of Temple Grandin. In examining these intimacies through Performance Studies, I argue that witnessing intimacies can produce affect in the reader or viewer, and that performances of intimacy can be performative, creating effects in the world. Ultimately, the project asks how we can open ourselves up to the transformative possibilities of unexpected intimacies and let those encounters lead us to new ways of hanging together in political belonging

Odissi dance: Paratopic performances of gender, state, and nation by Anurima Banerji ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This dissertation traces the transformation of Odissi, a South Asian classical dance style, from its historical role as a regional artistic and ritual practice to its modern incarnation as national spectacle, with a focus on the state's regulation of the dance form and performances of gender embedded within it. Using an interdisciplinary approach that brings together social history, political theory, and dance and performance studies, this project explores three key themes: the idea of the state as a choreographic agent; the performance of "extraordinary genders" (those identities and acts that lie outside everyday norms); and the original concept of the "paratopia" - a space of alterity produced by performance - to explore how Odissi challenges dominant cultural imperatives

Experiments in exile: C.L.R. James and Helio Oiticica in the United States by Laura Harris ( Book )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
What happens to the motley crew, that mobile, insurgent and creative social formation, crossing racial, gender and generational lines, that historians Peter Linebaugh and Marcus Rediker identify as a crucial counterforce within the consolidation of capitalism, imperialism and the modern state? This dissertation explores the aesthetic and social experiments undertaken by the Trinidadian writer and political activist, C.L.R. James, and the Brazilian visual artist and counterculturalist, Helio Oiticica, particularly those undertaken while each lived, at different points, undocumented and underground in the United States. It argues that while Linebaugh and Rediker insist the motley crew disappeared in the nineteenth century, James and Oiticica each independently find something like it in the aesthetic sociality of blackness, the popular practices they encountered among the predominantly black residents of the barrack-yards of Port-of-Spain and the favelas of Rio de Janeiro. James and Oiticica each sought to make contact with this aesthetic sociality. And they sought to expand upon such forms of contact during their sojourns in the United States. The dissertation examines, in particular, their attempts to generate and structure, in collaboration with others, new forms of contact, James through a new type of organization, the Correspondence group, and its organ, the Correspondence newspaper, and Oiticica, through a new type of environmental space, and the proposals for new projects or "programs in progress" he produced within them. It examines the way each tried to imagine new forms of writing that were to culminate in book-like projects they were unable to finish. It also examines the way sexuality articulated the forms of collaboration in which they were engaged, and the forms of production and reproduction, both textual and social, to which they aspired. This dissertation thinks the experiments James and Oiticica each undertook and the formations that developed around them as the traces of the motley crew, not the degraded remnants of a past phenomenon that was effectively crushed, but two attempts--among many others--at its reconstruction and renewal
The work of sacrifice: Gender performativity, modernity, and Islam in contemporary Turkish performance (1980s--2000s) by Eser Selen ( Book )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
This study is an analysis of contemporary Turkish performance, framed within the theory of the work of sacrifice, which examines the concepts of gender performativity, modernity and Islam. The idea of sacrifice is primarily used as a lens to critically explore issues of religion, race, ethnicity, gender, and sexuality in contemporary Turkey. In this context, "the work of sacrifice" suggests an economy in which the sacrificial subject suffers from an absence of her subjecthood in every social and political domain in Turkey. A lack reveals itself through the absence of the body of the sacrificed. This disembodiment may be forced or voluntary, real or imaginary. From the perspective of an economy of recognition, the work of sacrifice is defined as the unseen activity that precedes and makes labor possible. It refers to the contribution of the subject to, while being kept outside of the accepted borders of, the community and the human condition
