Cop Watch/Cop Listen/Cop Move: Policing the Police With Performative Methodologies

In this essay, the authors argue for sound and movement as performative methodologies for studying policing. The proposed performative methodology, “Cop Watch/Cop Listen/Cop Move,” provides a space for (re)seeing, (re)listening, and (re)experiencing policing and, thus, prepares participants to navigate and challenge police surveillance and brutality. The questions that the essay addresses include the following: What theoretical and methodological contributions arise from a space where sounds and experiences of policing are sonically and kinesthetically performed? And how might rehearsal for this performance, and the performance itself, exist as a kind of laboratory for social movements that challenge policing?
