Join the LTC on Saturday, April 14, 2018 at the Lewis Center for the Arts at Princeton University for the 2018 LTC María Irene Fornés Institute Symposium in Princeton, NJ!
The 2018 LTC Fornés Institute Symposium will be be the first formal gathering of the Fornés Institute, which works inside of the LTC to preserve and archive Maria Irene Fornés’s legacy as a teacher, mentor and artist. This symposium will serve as both an opportunity for scholarship about the work and legacy of Maria Irene Fornés to be highlighted as well as a place for scholars, teachers, and practitioners to gather and learn more about this seminal Cuban American playwright and teacher. We believe that Maria Irene Fornés’ impact on Latinx Theatre, and the American Theatre at large, to be as great as other giants of our field, and we refuse to allow her legacy to be passed over by selective history and normative gatekeepers. We hope that by promoting her long list of achievements, advocating for her work to be taught in the university setting, and enlightening the field of her numerous students and their successes, we will be doing our part to ensure that her legacy is remembered for generations to come.
