MS 123 PZ -Embodying Identity in Price: Language, Gesture and Other Forms of Self-Expression


Institution: Pitzer

Description: This interdisciplinary course explores how talk, gesture, bodily practices and other forms of communication produce identities, society, culture and communication. This course will combine the reading of sociolinguistic texts that study how language and gesture produce identity; feminist scholarship which troubles separations between human and non-human, self and other, the private-subjective and the scholarly-objective; and the viewing of photography, video, performance art and film that artistically engage these issues. Students will respond to these texts by practicing sensory ethnography (the observation of everyday interaction that centers the sensing body of both researcher and subject); and artistic production in any medium.

Prerequisite(s): Please check course schedule for requirements.
