Don’t miss the Fall General Meeting on October 19th where you will hear from Emily Roxworthy, Dean of the School of Dramatic Arts.
A scholar-artist with degrees in theatre arts, literature, and performance studies from Cornell University (MA) and Northwestern University (BS and PhD), Dr. Roxworthy was formerly on the Theatre & Dance faculty of the University of California, San Diego, where she also served as Associate Vice Chancellor of Faculty Diversity & Equity, Provost of Earl Warren College, and Associate Dean of the Graduate Division. Her research and creative interests include roleplay training, intercultural theatre, digital media, and performance in higher education.
Dr. Roxworthy is the founder and artistic director of Workplace Interactive Theatre (WIT), a theatre company that emerged from a 2014 University of California Office of the President’s commission to create diversity training for all chairs and deans on the ten UC campuses using documentary theatre-based improvisational workshops. She is also the creator of an educational video game prototype that was twice funded by the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH); based on her historical research, Drama in the Delta recreates life in one of the Japanese American internment camps from World War II using digital roleplay technology.
