10 J. Ellen Gainor, Theatre, Film, and Dance

Susan Glaspell in Context: American Theater, Culture, and Politics, 1915-48 (University of Michigan Press, 2001). Placed in various contexts —Greenwich Village and Provincetown bohemia, the American frontier, and American modernism—Gainor presents the dramatic work of key American author, Susan Glaspell. Gainor considers the theatrical, cultural, political, social, historical, and biographical climates in which Glaspell wrote. Gainor's discussion of these complex and interesting contexts has gained accolades. The book received one of Choice's Outstanding Academic Title awards for 2002. It is also the featured work at the "Author Meets Critics" plenary session at the Comparative Drama Conference.
