Prof. Goodlander focuses on Asian performance as it intersects with gender studies, ethnography, performance studies, visual culture and museum studies, postcolonial theory, and transnational circuits of performance.
Prof . Goodlander has received many grants and fellowships for her performance work and research on Asian performance, including a Fulbright Fellowship to Indonesia and funding from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation. Her past research focused on women and traditional performance in Bali, especially “wayang kulit” or shadow puppetry, about which she recently completed a book manuscript tentatively called: Women in the Shadows: Gender, Puppets, and the Power of Tradition in Bali. Currently she is researching how theatre, especially puppetry, articulates identities within urban Southeast Asia and the diaspora—focusing on Indonesia, Cambodia, Malaysia, and Thailand.
