The Invisible Truth: An Exposition of Gender Violence and Our Demands for Change
LAIS/WGSS 497: Embodied Politics of Latin America
Monday, April 16, 2018, 4-7 p.m., Lower Forum
The Invisible Truth exposition was the final project for the upper-level LALIS/WGSS seminar, “Embodied Politics in Latin America: Race, Gender, Sex, and Performance,” taught by Dr. Mariela Méndez in the Spring of 2018. “Embodied Politics in Latin America” was a class focused on the imaginative and political possibilities of performance art in Latin America, where a varied repertoire of embodied practices has helped stage resistance against acts of violence towards women.
Viewing performance as having the potential to open up a space for the inscription of the material realities of lived trauma, students worked on a final performative intervention meant to foster a meaningful conversation around sexual assault in the UR campus.
