Performing Identity

Enacting the Personal, National, and Political

This collection of cutting-edge research invites us to interrogate the ways in which we seek to affiliate – and differentiate – ourselves. Through explorations of nationhood, statelessness, race, religion, gender, and sexuality, this scholarship demonstrates the importance of theatre and performance studies to a critical understanding of identity – both on an individual and a collective scale.
