October 7 brown-bag on Asian American women playwrights

When: Monday, October 07, 2013 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM
Where: Francis Scott Key : 2120
Event Type(s): Lecture

The Center for the History of the New America welcomes you to attend a brown-bag discussion with Professor Esther Kim Lee on "Asian American Women Playwrights and the Dilemma of the Identity Play: Staging Heterotopic Subjectivities." Dr. Lee will examine three case studies-Julia Cho's 99 Histories, Diana Son's Satellites, and Young Jean Lee's Songs of the Dragons Flying to Heaven-in order to articulate how each playwright writes about her identity as both an Asian American and a woman while at the same time rejecting the limitations and expectations of that identity.
