“Unmasking the Technologies of White Supremacy”
As a discipline, the performing arts in higher education have always been particularly vulnerable to political correctness and social justice. Now wokeness is taking over.
The College Fix reports:
Brown theatre department offers course on ‘white male patriarchy’
Brown University theatre students can take classes in playwriting, acting and directing.
But they can also prepare for their Hollywood careers by learning what technologies are used by white supremacists to advance the “white male patriarchy.”
The Ivy League university class called “Unmasking the Technologies of White Supremacy” will “examine the re-emergent topics of white supremacy and fascism within the so-called post-truth political media landscape.”
Students in the Department of Theatre Arts and Performance Studies course will also look at the issues through the lens of “critical theory”
The course description further explains:
The first section will draw from black feminism and critiques of fundamental American forms of freedom built upon the immobility of “the other” in the service of white racial capital. The second section of the course will contend with the recent rise of Proud Boys, Identity Europa, and the rise of the far-right in Eastern Europe through the lens of performance studies to understand the procedures of identification and aesthetics that lead to white supremacy.
The department has committed itself to fighting “white supremacy” and “police power.”
