Eine neue SneakPeak zu den #SchlüsselbegriffederPublicHistory. Heute geht es um #Performativität; einen vielschichtigen Begriff, der gerade für die Public History ein enormes analytisches Potenzial bereit hält.
Los geht's!
Ob wir im #Schlachtenpanorama dem immersiven Effekt des Dabeiseins unterliegen oder als Reenactors die Schlacht von #Gettysburg nachspielen: Geschichte wird gemacht, ihre Produktion und Rezeption geschieht performativ.
Den Begriff „performativ“ prägte John L. Austin. Er wollte verdeutlichen, dass im Akt des Sprechens Handlungen vollzogen werden. Ein Beispiel: Die Schiffstaufe, die mit dem Wurf einer Flasche gegen den Schiffsrumpf und den Worten „Ich taufe dieses Schiff ...“ vollzogen wird.

We have to understand that white neolibs are not stupid—they are willfully ignorant.
Their solidarity is merely performative, just as it is with #BlackLivesMatter; to educate themselves on the actual history of #PuertoRican politics is not worth possibly losing two Dem senators.
They don’t actually care about the situations they make their ignorant comments on, outside of how black and brown suffering can serve as a tool to benefit white agendas—Again, simply look to #BlackLivesMatter and all of last year’s performative #activism.
There is a strong irony that these faux-progressive white neolibs (and their token black and Latino stooges) amplify their performative beliefs in their bios, hashtags and feeds but their activism stops at actually taking action. They decide to preserve their whiteness instead.
