THEATER 48.3

VOLUME 48, NUMBER 3

Our last issue, THEATER UNDER NATIONALISM: EASTERN EUROPE, looked at the rise of xenophobic nationalism and its implications for theater in Central and Eastern Europe. Our current issue, PROTEST & AMERICAN THEATER: WHAT’S HOLDING US BACK?, centers on related crises within the United States. Between far-too-right politics in U.S. administration, rhetoric against marginalized communities, and the reprimanding of journalists, artists and scholars in this issue—including Alisa Solomon, thomas f. defrantz, Amy Holzapfel, and Ernesto Pujol—confront the threat of an illiberal democracy.
