Book Talk: Earth Matters on Stage: Ecology, Environment and American Theater

Friday, April 23, 2021 at 12:00pm

Virtual Event

Earth Matters on Stage: Ecology and Environment in American Theater tells the story of how American theater has shaped popular understandings of the environment throughout the twentieth century as it argues for theater’s potential power in the age of climate change. Using cultural and environmental history, seven chapters interrogate key moments in American theater and American environmentalism over the course of the twentieth century in the United States. It focuses, in particular, on how drama has represented environmental injustice and how inequality has become part of the American environmental landscape.

With Theresa May, Theatre Arts.
