Description

An exciting new work on how black and Asian racial structures were woven together within US theatrical practices in the run up to the Second World War, Steen uses this history to model how we might use performance histories to more carefully assess how racial formation occurs on the boundaries between racial groups in an international context.

Texte du rabat

Drawing on original archival research, Racial Geometries examines popular forms of performance -- from musical theatre and minstrelsy to non-theatrical forms like Chinatown tourism -- to expose how American racial formation between the two world wars was not determined only within national borders but traded on and influenced international dynamics.
