Jennifer Cayer's work situates dramatic literature and performance art within their social and historical contexts. Her first book project, "Embodied Ethnographies: Feminist Theater Encounters Anthropology," is an investigation of North and South American performance practice,citing an emergence of a "new" twentieth and twenty-first century theatre, framed by a longer history of theatre and ethnography, and reexamined depictions of politics and gender. Her second book project will be an analysis of the intercultural aspects of Zora Neale Hurston's plays. Cayer is currently a Visiting Assistant Professor of dramatic literature, performance studies, and cultural theory in the English department at Amherst College.
