THEA 398 - Research and Virtual Performance

Inspired by the work of Anna Deavere Smith (documentary theatre) and in collaboration with the Wheaton Archives and the Alumni Office, students will learn research and interviewing skills to bring to light the experiences of people of color throughout our college’s history, past, and present.  We will spend half of the semester gathering documents, then create a series of short performances, record and share them on the Theatre and Dance website and various social media sites.

The goal is to create an in-depth and nuanced portrait, archival and living, of Wheaton College, through the lens of Feminist Anti Racist storytelling.
