Angela Marino

With the goal of further studying the ways in which arts and performance institutions continue to support and uphold racism, Angela Marino in Fall 2019 taught Theater 25AC: “Performance in América.” This course considers America as contested territory, where multiple Americas are not just written but also performed. By studying performance we look at how different meanings of America have been constructed over time.

Program Model

Support for Both Instructors and Students

The Creative Discovery Fellows program starts from the understanding that instructors and students need support to experiment and be innovative, and that providing this support not only leads to impactful learning but helps level the playing field in terms of who gets to be creative and whose stories get told.

Our model involves working closely with faculty cohorts to help them design effective creative assignments and providing near-peer support for students to complete those assignments.
