Students in this course will read and discuss a variety of dramatic literature and critical theories by and about ethnic American theatre artists and theorists, paying close attention to gendered, historical, and social contexts. Through the study of these works, the class aims to open a dialogue about how race and gender are perceived and constructed among diverse ethnic American cultural contexts, including African American, Latinx, Asian American, and indigenous communities. As this is a theatre class, students will also examine the plays as performance texts to better understand how race and gender are constructed on stage.
