Race, Drag, and Performance

Race, Drag, and Performance
In this course we will examine the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, and identity through the performance of drag. To do so, we will examine how racial, gendered, and sexualized identities are constructed and maintained through performances, both on and off-stage. We will further examine how drag performances may challenge prevailing understandings of race, gender, and sexuality, and explore the meanings that are created when performing racialized drag.
