1. Cloud, Nicole. "Performing the Embodiment of Other: Illuminating the Self: The Role of Performing Other in the Performance Classroom" Paper presented at the annual meeting of the NCA 94th Annual Convention, TBA, San Diego, CA, <Not Available>. 2018-09-20 <http://citation.allacademic.com/meta/p257077_index.html>

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: This study reports results of a scan of publicly-available principal performance assessments. Eight assessments met pre-established criteria for rigor, i.e., the assessment development process was transparent and involved psychometric testing (validity and reliability). Results showed that few assessments have been rigorously developed and make psychometric testing details available and many assessments were developed in the 1980s. The VAL-ED (Porter, et al., 2006) showed exemplary reliability and validity.

Abstract: Performance research: Understanding the how and why of performing research
Patricia Alvarez McHatton, Ph.D.
University of South Florida

Performance texts are emerging as a genre for qualitative researchers. The terms performance ethnography and ethno anthropology as well as ethno performance have raised many issues about moving from theory to action. By performing one's research project in a variety of approaches and methods, researchers may make reflective and critical statements often not an option in other approaches that are more traditional. In a sense this approach will marry action to interpretation. In this presentation I will describe and discuss how I recently taught a course on performance research and analyze the approaches by the emerging artistic genres including readers theater and digital storytelling.

Abstract: Practices of recording activity and inspecting it, reporting performance upward the hierarchy and evaluating it downward are critical for functioning of any bureaucracy and always partially shape its performance. Bureaucracies inside Russian enforcement agencies involved in processing of a criminal case are especially prone to this tendency due to unprecedented level of bureaucratic autonomy they gained during last decade. Russian enforcement agencies are practically autonomous from external controls that would shape their everyday performance towards societally or governmentally imposed ends: law and order, crime control, or even systematic protection of political regime. High level of centralization leading to lack of feedback from local polities and communities; weak organizational culture unable to provide internal controls (partially due to quick turnover of personnel); and weak judicial system are main factors that allow enforcement agencies high levels of autonomy. There are also two strategies the agencies use to protect their everyday activities from scrutiny from the federal political powers: conformity to pressures from federal center in processing politically driven cases (that are very rare and do not shape their everyday practice in any other way), and strategic avoidance of opening cases that might become politically loaded on any other occasion.
As a result, routine activity of Russian enforcement agencies is being shaped by their internal systems of evaluation more than by any external pressures. In processing of a criminal case, officers from different agencies strategically bargain with each other balancing their ‘performance evaluation related’ interests at expense of other parties involved. They develop techniques of picking ‘right’ cases (and evading ‘wrong’ ones), manipulating charges depending on victim’s and defendant’s statuses as well as the ‘evaluation-related’ status of a specific charge, faking evidence and imposing pressures on defendants, victims and even courts, in order to achieve outcomes that suite ‘evaluation related’ needs of all enforcers involved. This project is based on interviews with law enforcement professionals and judges, analysis of statistics and documents including the guidelines that regulate performance evaluation within Russian criminal police forces, investigative authorities and state prosecutors’ offices. It also shows that a similar quasi-evaluation system unofficially exists within Russian courts, forcing judges to comply with illegal practices of enforcement agencies by turning a blind eye to the deficiencies of prosecution’s position in court in order to avoid high appeal rates. Convictional bias of Russian criminal justice system is one well-known outcome of this bargaining-and-sorting process. Others include torture and illegal use of force by police, high latency of some types of crime, discrimination and corruption of justice.

Abstract: Performance is a meaningful strategy for feminist pedagogy, particularly to teach about the economic disparities and government policies that make women’s lives precarious. I describe the performances created by students in four Women’s and Gender Studies courses I taught. I analyze how creating a performance helped students learn about intersectionality theory, social class, neoliberalism, and the vulnerability of women as a result of increasing poverty. I discuss student development of skills in feminist research, non-fiction creative writing, public speaking, and activism. Finally, I reflect on the potential contributions of this course for building WGS programs in precarious times.
