Native American Women's Theater

 Miami University's Ann Elizabeth Armstrong, Kelli Lyon Johnson, and William A. Wortman have recently edited and published a collection of plays written by Native American women called Performing Worlds into Being: Native American Women's Theater (King Library PS628.I53 P47 2009). In addition to the plays this collection includes production histories, essays, and interviews. These works were first presented at a conference called "Honoring Spiderwoman Theater/Celebrating Native American Theater" in 2007 held here at Miami and have been edited and expanded for this book collection. A cd with video clips and photos is also included. Contributors include Murielle Borst, Victoria Nalani Kneubuhl, Gloria Miguel, Monique Mojica, Julie Pearson-Little Thunder, Vincent P. Scott, Spiderwoman Theatre, etc.
