In an essay subtitled "Native American Voices and Postcolonial Theory," Louis Owens criticizes postcolonial theorists
who claim to represent a wide panoply of minority voices yet fail to recognize the existence of a resistance literature
arising from "indigenous, colonized inhabitants of the Americas." Owens asks rhetorically what the indigenous Native
American must do "to be allowed a voice like Shakespeare's cursing Caliban" without resorting to mimicking the
language of the "colonial center" that determines legitimate discourse (in Gretchen Bataille, ed., NATIVE AMERICAN
REPRESENTATIONS, 13, 22). Elizabeth Cook-Lynn has argued for the development of a nationalistic, Third World

which transcends period or cultural distinctions. The 2006 M/MLA drama
panel welcomes submissions which critically address the stakes of
dismemberment in drama. This might take the form of an analysis of a
particular play or a contemporary look at dramatic theories of dismemberment
from Nietzsche’s conception of Dionysian drama to Artaud’s Theatre of
Cruelty. Broader approaches from theories of mimesis to performance studies
which work toward the dismemberment of drama as a genre will also be
