    Product Description

    An Introduction to Complexity Pedagogy: Using Critical Theory, Critical Pedagogy and Complexity in Performance and Literature offers readers an introduction to the basic concepts of complexity science and how they might be applied in the teaching of composition, creative writing, performance, and literature.

    The book builds on Critical Theory (defined as Frankfurt Theory) and border theory, serving as a critique of neoliberalism in higher education and the teaching of critical thinking as a set of skills. Individual chapters are devoted to the following artists and writers: - the Choctaw people

    • author LeAnne Howe
    • Chicana lesbian author Gloria Anzaldua
    • performance artist Karen Finley
    • the performance duo Bob Flanagan and Sheree Rose The strength of this book is that it concentrates on the teaching of interrelated topics: borders (including the border between the able/disabled), complexity, mixed ancestry, ability/disability, texts, and performance, using the Mexico-U.S. border as the working example of a complexity system. The work of the five aforementioned artists and authors are used to focus on political resistance within the context of decolonialism, but there are also references to mixed ancestry populations (including Redbones) and disability issues. This complexity frame of reference allows the reader to see and understand both the artists' narratives and viewpoints in the dynamic relations of shorter and longer time frames. No prior knowledge of complexity science is required and ample examples of complexity-related topics-- from coral reefs to zebra stripes--are provided. The focus is on students in state universities and community college transfer students, especially first generation students and students of color, with policy implications pointing to a critique of both elite small liberal arts colleges (SLACs) and research institutions. An Introduction to Complexity Pedagogy: Using Critical Theory, Critical Pedagogy and Complexity in Performance and Literature is the perfect text for assignment in a variety of classrooms, including courses in Complexity Science, Composition and Rhetoric, Performance Arts, Cultural Studies, Critical Theory, Ethnic Studies, and many others. Perfect for courses such as: Introduction to Creative Writing Advanced Composition Introduction to Border Art Introduction to Complexity in the Arts and the Humanities Introduction to Multicultural Literature Introduction to Chicanx and Native American Literature Introduction to Performance Art and Social Justice Special Topics: Complexity, the Environment, Literature and the Arts Special Topics: Disability Studies and Performance Special Topics: Critical Family Histories, Mixed Ancestry and Pedagogy
