1. Trebus, Danielle M. The Coterie Theatre’s Transition from Children’s Theatre to Multigenerational Theatre: 1991-2014.

Degree: 2015, University of Missouri – Kansas City

The programming of The Coterie Theatre of Kansas City, Missouri, under Artistic Director Jeff Church, was studied from September 1990 to August 2014. The works researched included world, commissioned and American premieres of plays for young audiences at the theatre. These plays were chosen in proof of the hypothesis that Jeff Church’s programming played a primary role in the theatre’s transition from a children’s theatre to a theatre for young audiences and then to a multigenerational theatre. The findings strongly suggest that not only is the hypothesis correct but Church’s programming contributed to The Coterie Theatre’s rise to national prominence. Advisors/Committee Members: Londré, Felicia Hardison, 1941- (advisor).

2. Grigaitienė, Jūratė. Play and improvisation in performances for children and youth in Lithuanian theatre (the late 20th - the early 21 st c.).

Degree: PhD, Art Criticism, 2012, Vytautas Magnus University

The thesis deals with a specific area of culture, extremely problematic and little studied by theatre scientists and critics, viz. performances for children and youth in Lithuanian theatre in the late 20th and the early 21st c. It analyzes the conceptions of play and theatre as cultural phenomena and the dynamics of their relations, identifies the bonds and differences between them, discusses close causal relationships between children‘s games and theatre, and discloses the interrelationship of play and theatrical improvisation, as well as broad opportunities of their application in performances for children and youth. The definition and the genesis of play and improvisation in performances for children and youth are studied from a scientific viewpoint, and the principal types of performances, creative principles, and major characteristics of expression are established that bring out their difference and autonomy with respect to the traditional model of adult theatre. The thesis seeks to prove that innovative experimental performances for children and youth in Lithuanian theatre create a unique and original theatre language not by means of copying traditional performances, but by creative reconstruction and modeling of the strategies of children‘s daily rolepays – plot-based games. By means of research instruments and approaches, the author endeavours to present the research into, and theoretical generalization of, the above named theatre phenomenon and thus to partly fill a...

Disertacijoje nagrinėjama itin problemiška, teatrologų beveik netyrinėta, specifinė kultūros sritis – spektakliai vaikams ir jaunimui lietuvių teatre XX a. antrojoje pusėje – XXI a. pradžioje. Analizuojama žaidimo ir teatro, kaip kultūros fenomenų, samprata ir santykių dinamika, išskiriant jų sąsajas ir skirtumus, aptariami glaudūs vaikų žaidimų ir teatro priežastiniai ryšiai, atskleidžiama žaidimo ir teatrinės improvizacijos sąveika bei plačios taikymo spektakliuose vaikams ir jaunimui galimybės. Moksliškai tiriama žaidimo ir improvizacijos spektakliuose vaikams ir jaunimui lietuvių teatre apibrėžtis ir genezė, raidos bruožai, tendencijos ir dėsningumai, išskiriami pagrindiniai spektaklių tipai, kūrybos principai ir svarbiausi raiškos bruožai, išryškinantys skirtį ir autonomiją tradicinio suaugusiųjų teatro modelio atžvilgiu. Siekiama įrodyti, kad lietuvių teatre novatoriški eksperimentiniai spektakliai vaikams ir jaunimui savitą, originalią teatro kalbą kuria ne kopijuodami tradicinius spektaklius, o kūrybiškai atkurdami ir modeliuodami kasdieninių vaikų vaidmeninių-siužetinių žaidimų strategijas. Pasitelkus mokslinius instrumentus ir prieigas, siekiama moksliškai ištirti ir teoriškai apibendrinti aptariamą teatro reiškinį ir tuo iš dalies užpildyti didelę spragą mūsų kultūros istorijoje ir teatrologijos moksle.

3. Perdue, Katherine Anne. Writing Desire: The Love Letters of Frieda Fraser and Edith Williams.

Degree: PhD, History, 2015, York University

This dissertation analyzes the intimate relationship produced by and reflected in the written correspondence between Frieda Fraser and Edith Williams, arguably the largest correspondence of its kind in North America. Frieda Fraser was a professor of microbiology at the University of Toronto and Edith Williams was one of the first female veterinarians in Canada. Their correspondence was written from 1924 to 1927 and then intermittently from 1933 to 1943. This dissertation contends that Frieda’s and Edith’s correspondence was a place wherein the women created a self-defined sexual description that was in dialogue with cultural discourses that denoted the meaning of the modern lesbian. Frieda and Edith referred to themselves as “devoted women,” their designation of a sexual subjectivity that marked their differentiation from these discourses. Edith and Frieda arrived upon a unique notion of romantic devotion, shaped alongside an awareness of contemporary depictions of the lesbian in literature, in science, and in the theatre. This dissertation analyzes how two middle-class Canadian women came to live their lives as “devoted women” within a culture that did not recognize, nor mirror their sexual identities. Affected by modernism, Edith’s and Frieda’s letter-writing produced, enhanced, and helped the women define their desire for one another. Moreover, the women’s devoted relationship benefitted their medical careers and their medical careers benefitted their partnership. In relation to family and profession this dissertation asks to what degree was discretion employed in order to preserve their relationship? In focusing on the correspondence, this dissertation is more than an exercise in “finding the lesbians” in Canadian history: it asks “how did the lesbians find themselves?” Advisors/Committee Members: McPherson, Kathryn (advisor).
