    Fall 2017: Exposing Race Archives: Buffalo & Paris This course studies connections between performance, race, and archives embodied in and around the transatlantic history of exhibits, zoos, and fairs from the nineteenth century forward. Emphasis will be placed on archives about such performances in venues such as sideshows, surgical theatres, and especially the world?s fairs in Buffalo (1901) and Paris (1889, 1900). We will discuss how these archives help us think critically about race and performance in a transatlantic context, and how such questions inform popular culture today. Students will learn how to consult such texts in context as well as create and perform their own texts in response. This course will be taught in English; French students will complete written assignments in French.
