Oct. 7: Brown-Bag on Asian American Women Playwrights

October 1, 2013

12:00 pm - 1:30 PM in Francis Scott Key Hall Room 2120.

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.
