Guillaume Tourniaire is doctoral candidate, instructor, and lecturer, who has taught large survey lectures, smaller focused seminars, and online courses, on Theatre Appreciation, Script Analysis, Dramatic Structure, and Theatre History.
His dissertation, "Show Boat's 'Make Believe;' Subversions of Stereotype and Sympathy as Liberalism" explores the manipulations of popular performance forms in musicals as a means of modeling inclusion and redefining full American citizenship.
Guillaume is also a director, dramaturge, and translator who has worked on plays and operettas in Boston, San Diego, and Washington, DC. Last spring, he served as dramaturge for our production of Molière's The Learned Ladies.
This fall, he returns to UW to teach Theatre History as well as work for the Communications Leadership graduate program, and also to Cornish College of the Arts to teach Musical Theatre History & Analysis and Modern Theatre History & Theory.
