Cohen presented her research in a lightning talk entitled ‘Nontraditional Casting: Transgressive or Transcendent?’ as part of a March 5th Scholar’s Studio  event on the theme of “Play.” Sponsored by The Graduate School and the UW Libraries, the Scholar’s Studio brings together graduate students across disciplines to share research in five-minute presentations designed to ignite discussion.  Cohen is Founding Artistic Director of Mirror Stage Theatre, which uses the power of theatre to challenge assumptions, bias and prejudice, while encouraging more thoughtful reflection on today's issues.
