This course explores technologically-mediated performance across a range of contemporary media such as art cinema, animation, tv, and virtual interactive platforms. From a transnational perspective, students will be introduced to the notion of performance through theories of film acting, cultural self-presentation, and embodiment. By paying close attention to how specific technologies mediate affect and sensation, we will trace how different performative practices challenge bodily norms linked to questions of citizenship, gender, and desire under globalization.
