Abstract: A text is a site of struggle; over meaning, and over power. Performance is that very battle embodied. In the global arena of the construction, (re)production, negotiation, contestation, and co-constitution of meaning, I articulate a call for opening up as contested space the confines of the classroom through critical performance, inviting the voices of bodies from the periphery into the very centers of our institutions of knowledge assembly. Through an autoethnographic reflexive essay recounting my experience instructing an introductory-level communication course alongside my enrollment in a graduate-level performance course, I contend that in inscribing an Other onto the self through critical performance in the classroom we open up the discourse(s) of power and privilege (and thus marginality) for potential scrutiny, critique, dismantling, and emancipatory change. I argue that when students are given the lens through which to recognize and articulate their own position of privilege, and are then asked to reconcile it with the voices of those often muted, they enflesh an agency often inaccessible to them from inside the apparatus of higher education. Critical performance pedagogy exposes a path toward empowerment from within the walls of the very institutions instrumental in reifying the hegemony that organizes our lived condition. To take this path is to deconstruct the boundaries of our felt experience, and renders visible terrain we have yet to traverse.

Abstract: Drug courts in the US have largely developed from local responses to community needs. As the number of drug court programs within states increase, state-level actors have begun to examine ways to hold local programs accountable by requiring performance measure reporting. Often the reporting is looked at as simply a required task and not a program management tool for the local programs. This paper explains the process of implementing statewide adult drug court performance measures as both an accountability mechanism and a performance management tool. In particular, it focuses on the process used by the National Center for State Courts in the state of Wisconsin. Performance targets were identified by a consensus approach with critical adult drug court stakeholders, informed by germane research literature. Training was based on realistic drug court problem scenarios developed by former drug court coordinators on NCSC staff. The performance targets will be of particular interest to any state that has adopted performance measures for their adult drug courts and set the ground work for developing a broad consensus around effective and efficient drug court performance. The impacts of this approach will be examined with surveys of local courts within Wisconsin.

Abstract: For the Qing court in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, theatrical performance was more than personal amusement: it was part of the rhythm of court life and an integral component of dynastic image making, and court patronage and censorship are prominent in the standard history of Chinese opera. The court is often pictured as a unitary player, summoning, selecting, and forbidding at will—though in fact, through the Neiwufu (Imperial Household Department), it was part of a complex, long-distance ecosystem of opera performance and performers. Using literary and archival sources, this paper examines the channels through which the Neiwufu interacted with the theater world, supplying the court with operatic entertainment and supporting state efforts to supervise popular culture.

The Neiwufu recruited eunuch and bondservant performers, but also reached further afield, through institutions like the Suzhou Silk Works and salt gabelle merchants in wealthy Yangzhou, to tap into local opera networks and recruit professional performers. Uncovering the experiences of low-status performers enmeshed in these networks reflects broader questions about Qing-era state-society relations; performing for the emperor and the court was no ordinary engagement, and while it might bring great rewards, entering the Neiwufu’s jurisdiction also came with dislocations and losses of autonomy. This paper investigates how performers of different backgrounds navigated these mixed incentives, and how the court's thirst for opera in the Qianlong period (1735-1795), and the waning of that thirst by the Daoguang period (1820-1850), affected the theater worlds in both Beijing and the Jiangnan cultural heartland.

Abstract: In this paper, I hypothesize that the provider of performance data matters. I experimentally examines this hypothesis and show that when the managerial level provides information, it thwarts motivation and performance information use.

Abstract: Despite the widespread use of employee performance evaluation programs and their influence on major career-related decisions made about employees, little is known about the structural conditions and aspects behind these performance-pay programs, which can sustain wage inequality within organizations. The present study contributes to the literature about the organization’s role in shaping social stratification by investigating in depth the performance evaluation and wage setting processes in one organizational setting. Using personnel data from one large private service organization in the United States, I precisely identify and test two distinctive stages of these performance-reward systems where organizations may introduce bias in the determination of salaries and rewards, promotions, and terminations. The first stage, the performance evaluation rating, because of its subjectivity, can be affected by gender, race, or nationality bias. Even if there is no bias in this first stage, bias can still affect the translation of performance evaluations into salary increases during the salary setting stage. By introducing discretion in this second stage, the compensation of women and minority employees may be discounted, even when they perform the same jobs at the same level. I conclude with a discussion of the theoretical and empirical implications of this article for research on organizational level processes and routines, performance, and inequality at the workplace.
