English 90ah. Asian American Theater and Performance

Instructor: Ju Yon Kim
Tuesday, 12:45-2:45pm | Location: TBA
Enrollment: Limited to 15 students

This seminar will explore Asian American theater and performance. We will examine how Asian American theater and performance artists have responded to popular images of Asian immigrants and cultures; how Asian American theater companies have cultivated and expanded our understanding of American theater and Asian American identity; and how artists and productions have experimented with conceptions of racial and gender performance. In addition to reading, viewing, and listening to a range of performances, students will participate in workshops led by artists and develop their own final performances.

This course satisfies the “1900-2000 Guided Elective" requirement for English concentrators and Secondary Field students.

This course satisfies the English Concentration "Diversity in Literature" requirement for students on the “Common Ground” curriculum.
