For the past twenty years, playwrights such as Suzan-Lori Parks, David Henry Hwang, and Cherrie Moraga have found themselves becoming as common in the dramatic literature curriculum as O'Neill, Williams, and Beckett, and the study of their work both re-affirms and challenges traditional approaches to studying and teaching drama. This panel seeks to address pedagogical approaches to teaching the work of minority playwrights in the classroom. Papers may focus on particular texts by ethnic American theater artists, and/or pedagogical models that grapple with the intersections of ethnic literature and drama as genre.

Interdisciplinary Perspectives on the English-speaking World
This series, entitled "Interdisciplinary Perspectives on the English-speaking World," examines the theoretical and practical crossover between fields and disciplines, as well as their methods, concepts and analytical tools, concerning the evolution of English studies in France, where interdisciplinarity has grown increasingly visible on the university level but has rarely itself been the object of inquiry.
Sponsored by the AHRC and run in association with the Scottish Network of Modernist Studies and British Association of Modernist Studies, this one-day postgraduate-led symposium aims to provide a forum for debate and exchange on topics relating to the interceptions between modernism and theory. Following Stephen Ross' edited collection Modernism and Theory: A Critical Debate (2009) which seeks 'to recapture the continuities among modernism and theory', this event will address specific concerns about the relationship between historical and theoretical approaches to modernism (in its various definitions), local and transnational locations, canonical and marginalised thinkers, political and philosophical readings.
