This panel invites papers that investigate American drama as a vehicle for socio-political discourse. In addition to analyses that consider specific dramatic texts, we would also encourage those that examine aspects of performance, staging, or the status of drama as a political discourse in the academy. We welcome papers examining American drama from any historical period. 300 word abstracts or full papers by Sept. 30 to Andrew Schopp at
