1940RE: [SACC-L] FW: Theatre and Cultural Anthropology
- Mar 3, 2003"My Heart Is Still Shaking" has not been published. I was able to do this
with special permission from the Marjorie Shostak scholarship fund and the
co-author, Beverly Bynum at Emory. The story presents some of Shostak's
early conversations with Nisa and then Shostak's return visit with Nisa
after her diagnosis with breast cancer. It is an extremely moving play.
Contact Beverly Bynum in the Theater Department at Emory.
