This panel seeks papers on Latin American theatrical works as mediums of socially accepted resistance and politically charged art forms. The panel will consider proposals analyzing plays and performances that challenge governments, inequities, and the status quo. What is it about these plays that connect them so profoundly with human rights? How is society represented in these dramatic texts? Proposals submissions and inquiries should be sent electronically (Microsoft Word Format, 250 words)
