Writing from the dual perspectives of artist and educator, Kathryn Dawson and Daniel A. Kelin II raise fundamental questions about the complex functions of the teaching artist in school, community, and professional theater settings. Contributions to the text explore a series of foundational concepts, including intentionality, quality, artistic perspective, assessment, and praxis, all used as a reflective framework to illuminate case studies from a wide range of teaching artist practice. Readers are also offered questions to guide their practical application, charts to complete, and the editors examine the practice of teaching in, through, and about drama and theater.

This book works to 'make change strange' from and for the field of theatre and performance studies. Growing from the idea that change is an under-interrogated category that over-determines theatre and performance as an artistic, social, educational, and material practice, the scholars and practitioners gathered here (including specialists in theatre history and literature, educational theatre, youth arts, arts policy, socially invested theatre, and activist performance) take up the question of change in thirty-five short essays. For anyone who has wondered about the relationships between theatre, performance and change itself, this book is an essential conversation starter.

"While 9/11 and its aftermath created a traumatic turning point for most of the writers in this book, it is telling that none of their essays begin with that moment. These young people were living, probing, and shifting their Muslim identities long before 9/11. . . . I've heard it said that the second generation never asks the first about its story, but nearly all the essays in this book include long, intimate portrayals of Muslim family life, often going back generations. These young Muslims are constantly negotiating the differences between families for whom faith and culture were matters of honor and North America's youth culture, with its emphasis on questioning, exploring, and inventing one’s own destiny."—from the Introduction by Eboo Patel InGrowing Up Muslim, Andrew Garrod and Robert Kilkenny present fourteen personal essays by college students of the Muslim faith who are themselves immigrants or are the children of immigrants to the United States. In their essays, the students grapple with matters of ethnicity, religious prejudice and misunderstanding, and what is termed Islamophobia. The fact of 9/11 and subsequent surveillance and suspicion of Islamic Americans (particularly those hailing from the Middle East and the Asian Subcontinent) have had a profound effect on these students, their families, and their communities of origin.

Ein Meisterwerk - anrührend und komisch, magisch und realistisch Thomas kann Dinge sehen, die andere nicht sehen können. Er sieht tropische Fische, die in den Grachten schwimmen und erfasst die Magie von Frau Amersfoort, der Nachbarin, die ihren Mann im Widerstand verloren hat. Er sieht die Schönheit von Elisa mit ihrem Bein aus Leder, das beim Gehen knirscht, und sogar Herrn Jesus, der Thomas anbietet, ihn einfach nur Jesus zu nennen. Vor manchen Dingen würde Thomas allerdings am liebsten die Augen verschließen. Aber er nimmt sich vor, dass er keine Angst mehr haben will. Und so wird er jeden Tag etwas mutiger und geht in kleinen Schritten seinen Weg. Ein Roman über eine Kindheit in den 50er Jahren - der zeitlose Fragen nach Liebe, Glaube, Freiheit und Glück thematisiert.
