About the Author

Susan Rasmussen is professor of anthropology in the Department of Comparative Cultural Studies at the University of Houston.


"Rasmussen has written a richly detailed and compelling study of Tuareg theater in northern Mali and Niger. She skillfully weaves together the aesthetic, social, and political dimensions of these performances and gives us a rare insight into the lives and artistic practices of the actors who bring the plays to life." -- Mary Jo Arnoldi, Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History
