The course will loosely follow, and intervene in, Michel de Certeau's The Practice of Everyday Life in order to study and experience a broad range of creative actions that resist the quotidian hierarchies of power that structure our lives. Rooted in a feminist transformational politic, this course will look at the ways that artists and theorists in the US and beyond have used creative tactics, or what de Certeau calls "the art of the weak" in order to address asymmetrical relations of power based on class, race, gender, sexuality, ability and citizenship. Students can expect to be required to perform tactical walking exercises, archival research and everyday actions, as well as creative and critical reading, writing, and enacting. This course will be intensely interdisciplinary and students will study creative resistance across a range of textual, embodied and other forms.
