This month we were excited to see professor Elaine Aston writing about her experience using the

SPHINX TEST with her feminist critical reflections classes. 

 

"Although the test has theatre makers in mind, I’ve been exploring it as a first-base, gender-awareness exercise in relation to canonical, dramatic texts. At the outset, students are invited to think of a recognised play that is in some way important to them. Thereafter, each student applies the test to that drama, which in turn provides an opportunity for collective, critical reflection on whether and how the ‘malestream’ is evidenced in renowned drama, past and present."
