David Henry Hwang
Sponsored Panel by the David Henry Hwang Society
While any paper on David Henry Hwang’s plays are welcome, we are interested in exploring the generation of Asian-American playwrights who have followed Hwang and their (dis)connection with Hwang’s legacy.
The David Henry Hwang Society was founded in 2016 at the Comparative Drama Conference with the goal of promoting scholarly examination of Hwang’s theatrical works. Since his first breakout play, FOB, in 1980, David Henry Hwang has proven the most significant and prolific Asian American playwright to date. From the global phenomenon of M. Butterfly and more recent successes with Yellow Face and Chinglish, Hwang has staged stories of the Asian American experience and explored questions of race, culture, and identity.
