Changes to the schedule for the last weeks of class have now been made on the Schedule and Performance Schedule pages. Please note that we’ll be doing exam preparatory exercises on one of the “Life is a Dream” days, and also on the last day of class. If you haven’t checked out the Lecture Outlines page, now is a good time – a complete set of notes is necessary for good exam preparation, and you can sruvey the outlines to see if your notes are missing anything.
The outline of Judith Butler’s theory that I gave in class was necessarily abridged and simplified. You can read the article yourself for a more detailed argument: Judith Butler, “Performative Acts and Gender Constitution: An Essay in Phenomenology and Feminist Theory,” Theatre Journal, Vol 4. No. 4 (Dec 1988), p. 519-531). The article is available through JSTOR, which you can access via the Library’s e-resources, or by clicking here (this link may not work off campus): Butler article
