Performing the Text: Mixed-genre Writing and Dissent


Spring 2014 quarter

Taught by

creative writing, poetics, aesthetics, media/performing arts
What does it mean to perform the text? What happens when genres collide? This creative writing program will bring together several terms often thought to be well-defined—including "poetry," "prose," "theater," "politics," and "essay"—and, through experiments in writing, reading, and collaborating, re-narrate their meanings and implications. Along the way we’ll investigate key concepts and texts in poets theater, guerilla poetry, and other forms of performance-based text, mining them to create our own individual and collaborative writings. During the quarter, our meetings will consist of weekly seminars, lectures, and "language labs"—times for brainstorming, rehearsing, and trying out language experiments.
