Kudos to Theatre Studies PhD Candidate Eury Chang for publishing in Theatre Research in Canada.
Eury’s first peer-reviewed article has been published in Theatre Research in Canada, Volume 36 / No 2 (Fall 2015), guest edited by Yana Meerzon. The article, “Towards Reconciliation: Immigration in Marty Chan’s The Forbidden Phoenix and David Yee’s lady in the red dress” is based on research which first began during his master’s degree at UBC, and espouses a new theoretical framework based on the relationship and power of theatre to reveal gaps in Canada’s cultural history in order to achieve social justice.
