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

 From Euripides’ Bacchae to Shakespeare’s Titus Andronicus to Sarah
Kane’s Cleansed bodily dismemberment has proven to be a dramatic trope
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
