Radical Imaginations: Race, Representation and Diversity in Theatre and the Artsonline course
What does it mean to be European today? In this course, we are going to investigate and problematize this question by engaging with questions of representation and colonial legacies on contemporary theatre stages and in cultural institutions. We will learn and practice how to address the uncomfortable elephant in the room: race. To do so, in the course, we will read works by postcolonial and feminist thinkers and learn about and from anti-racist struggles, decolonial movements and their histories. In different workshop sessions, we will work toward producing a racial equity glossary tool, explaining prevalent terms such as “the canon”, “diversity”, “decolonisation”, “diaspora”, “intersectionality”, “microaggression”, “othering”, “racism”, “white gaze” and others.
The course is widely applied to students in aesthetic subjects (music, literature, theatre, dramaturgy, film, media studies, digital design), journalism and professional education.
