Description - Racial Geometries of the Black Atlantic, Asian Pacific and American Theatre by Shannon Steen
An exciting new work on how black and Asian racial structures were woven together within US theatrical practices in the run up to the Second World War, Steen uses this history to model how we might use performance histories to more carefully assess how racial formation occurs on the boundaries between racial groups in an international context.
