A critical performance pedagogy that matters

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Some think of ethnography as a journey, others see it as a destination. With Ellis and Bochner, I want an autoethnography that shows struggle, passion, an embodied life that embraces a social justice agenda. Critics want to tame ethnography, categorize it, place it under the control of reason and logic. I want an unruly ethnography fractured, a mosaic of sorts, layered performance texts, messy, a montage, part theory, part performance, multiple voices, a performance with speaking parts: a critical performance ethnography that makes a difference in the world.
