Stefka Mihaylovais Assistant Professor of Theatre History and Performance Theory. She is currently completing her book manuscript, “Viewers in Distress: Race, Gender, and Radical Performance at the Turn of the Twenty-First Century.” The manuscript argues that in the mid-1990s new radical performance began emerging in the US and Britain, challenging our understanding of radicalism inherited from the 1960s and 1970s, and explores the historical factors that influenced this shift. She is the coeditor of Uncle Tom’s Cabins: The Transnational History of America’s Most Mutable Book (2018). Her research has appeared inTheatre SurveyNTQ, and book collections. She has worked as a production and literary dramaturge.
