Dangerous Performances: Re-searching Social Justice through Performance and Critical Discourse

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

Performance as a social justice agenda generates uneasiness for witnesses of the performance. This study asks: can researchers, as radical adult educators, utilize performance to contest and transcend conventional knowledge? Can the tension of witnessing counter-narratives enhance liberatory discourse? This presentation proposes to highlight the performance of counter-narratives as a re-search encounter for critical dialogue and social justice. Using narrative data on hunger, class, and gender, and the frameworks of LatCrit and Critical Race Feminism, the audience is invited to engage in reflexive dialogue. The emphasis will be on the physical and emotional tensions experienced during the performance. The interrogation of the multi-intersectional points of the re-search that encompasses academic/white priviledge, narrative date as counter-stories, and performance will be discussed. The hope is that the presentation will provide an organic experience in shared meaning making for the participants.
