Gender on the Global Stage examines the ways in which contemporary drama from around the world represent the experiences of non-Western women. Using feminist and postcolonial theories, we will investigate the impact of globalization on the dramatic representation of women and the construction of gender, with special attention to the work of female playwrights from Africa, Asia, Latin America, the Middle East, and Eastern Europe. We will also compare some of this work to plays on similar subjects by contemporary Western dramatists.
