Between the Masks articulates a study of representation and the 'politics of place' through a pedagogy of narrative-performing inquiry and a critical reflection on identity. As a resistance to essentialist politics, the text focuses on the identity making/marking role of cultural materials in the recovery of different and overdetermind histories. It proposes a multicultural revision of knowledge that displaces the binarisms of insider/outside rather than simply shifting the margin to the center.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The coda, Critical Teaching and Theatricality in Everyday Life, is an especially provocative look at universities and English departments as theaters of knowledge. Recommended for all collections. -- H. A. Booth, SUNY at Buffalo * CHOICE *
Between the Masks presents one feminist's contruction of a pedagogy that can illuminate the politics of race, class, and gender. * Signs: Journal of Women in Culture and Society *
The author takes the seminal and sometimes most difficult arguments of important theorists and applies them to the concepts of performance and essentialism in ways that are inventive and insightful . . . . The book is theoretically rich without being convoluted; therefore, rich in ways that are relevant and meaningful. -- D. Soyini Madison, associate director, Institute of African-American Research, University of North Carolina, Chapel Hil
