What I Do at SSU

I teach in the Theatre Studies concentration, and teach courses in dramaturgy, playwriting, theater history, and dramatic literature.  I curate the annual Super Mega Molten Hot Lava New Play Festival, and sometimes serve as dramaturg on department shows.  Some of the courses I teach have a focus on issues of race, gender, and identity, and some of the work I do focuses on ensemble-created work.
