On 14 Dec, Prof. Ulla Haselstein (FU Berlin) will give a guest lecture on "Parodies of Adventure: Mark Twain and Robert Coover".

For her book Collusions of Fact & Fiction: Performing Slavery in the Works of Suzan-Lori Parks & Kara Walker, Ilka Saal was nominated as a finalist for the 2021 Theatre Library Association's Book Award.
