The Grapes of Wrath in Context - Interdisciplinary Dialogues: "Social Contexts II"|
October 29, 2007
Monday, October 29th at 7:15 PM in the Theresa Lang Theatre
“Social Contexts II”
David Linton (Professor of Communication Arts) and Michelle Ronda (Assistant Professor of Sociology) will discuss how this play examines and can help us better understand the social forces that impacted people during the Great Depression. In particular, they will address social class, the criminalization of poverty, and Union organization.
The next MMC Theatre Production Workshop is The Grapes of Wrath and our five-part interdisciplinary dialogue series explores this play. These discussions will involve scholars and MMC students from a variety of fields, all of whom will engage this play as a response to and reflection of history. We hope these conversations enrich your viewing of the MMC production. Students, staff, faculty, alumni, friends, family are very welcome to attend.
Please feel free to contact Jill Stevenson (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
