PAMLA Forum: Acting, Roles, Stages

Presiding Officer: 
Katherine Kinney, University of California, Riverside

How do actors, roles, and stages move across the world? This year’s PAMLA Forum, titled “Acting, Roles, Stages,” features two speakers, Melanie Masterton Sherazi and Michelle Bloom, whose research considers fascinating transnational conduits in film, theater, and literature: how Rome offered a stage for African American artists at the beginning of the Civil Rights movement and the reciprocal relationship between French and Chinese cinema. We look forward to a wide-ranging discussion about the significance of dramatic performance in staging new directions in our field.
