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.
