Cultural Pluralism in American Theatre and Drama: A Selected Bibliography
Marc Maufort with the assistance of Francine Lercangée and Myriam LodeweyckxThis selected bibliography of secondary sources is intended as an introductory tool for those scholars wishing to pursue further studies on the highly debated topic of cultural pluralism in American theatre and drama. It spans the 1980-1992 period as this decade saw the emergence of the major publications in the field (a few 1993/94 titles were included if available at the time this book went to press). We based our compilation on the MLA Bibliography and the annual Modern Drama bibliographies. We thought it appropriate to divide our bibliography into two main sections: the first, "General," assembles material relating to broad theoretical, historical or literary concerns, while the second gathers books or articles dealing with specific writers.
