Author
  • Mariana Seda (Iowa State University)

Abstract

This session investigates how Latino/a identity and culture have developed from the theater in America. We will discuss prominent figures in the theater who have affected the Latino/a presence in the United States and the emerging popularity of Latino/a theater, especially Chicano/a theater, as it works toward deconstruction of cultural stereotypes. This session will appeal most to those interested in contemporary Latino/a cultures and identities and the influence of avant-garde ethnic theater arts.
