Examines critical discourses and theories in performance studies, including performativity, performance collectives, participation, and activism; corporeality and presence; identity and enactment of trauma; technological supplements to performance (from photography, film, and slide projection to television/video, virtual reality and digital and social media); biomedicine in the performance and alteration of gender and sexual roles; performance in the post- or trans-human cyborg age of body enhancement and redesign, uploaded forms of consciousness, implant and wearable computers; and an array of other mental and physical technologies that increasingly render the body ambiguously human.
