Hello Reader! 

Welcome to my site! I am a scholar and artist who explores creative responses to colonial and settler colonial histories. I teach because it is a practice of freedom. And I make theater and performance to make sense of the world. I am a PhD Candidate in Theater Arts and Performance Studies at Brown University, where I am completing a project on contemporary North American indigenous-centered theater works and performance artists. During the 2016-2017 academic year, I was a visiting scholar in MIT's Literature section, and I am the 2016 winner of the TDR Graduate student essay contest. I love listening to audio books and power ballads.  You can reach me at lilian_mengesha@brown.edu.
