Visiting Scholar, Women's, Gender and Sexuality Studies

Danielle Drees studies gender and labor in 20th- and 21st-century performance. She received her PhD in Theatre and Performance, along with a certificate in Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies, from Columbia University, and her work has appeared in the Journal of Dramatic Theory and Criticism, Frontiers, Performance Research, and Theatre Journal. Her book project, Change the World Overnight: Sleep as Feminist Performance and Protest, draws on Marxist feminism, performance studies, and disability studies to excavate the political and dramaturgical value of sleep in feminist theatre from 1970 to the present. Danielle has taught classes in writing, gender and sexuality studies, literature, and theatre, and served as the assistant editor of Synapsis: a health humanities journal.
