This lecture is part of the Interdisciplinary Arts Symposium (IAS) Season III, which explores Immigration, Migration, and Transplantation, looking at the theme of transforming, transferring, or hybridizing cultural identity, and its expression in drama, music, and dance. We will look particularly at how immigrants to the United States use performance to tell their stories. For more information about IAS Season III events, please visit www.unl.edu/ias.
