Performing Ethnography: Staging Resistance

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


In this performance script, I interrogate the ethical and political implications of the interdisciplinary turn to performance and theatre in critical ethnography. I focus on ethnodramas, and the performance theories of Boal, Conquergood, Freire, Goffman, Madison, Saldana, Schechner, and Turner. A play-within-a-play is offered as an instance of this kind of writing.
