Jessica Del Vecchio holds a BA in psychology from Princeton University, a MA from the University of Texas, Austin, and a PhD in theatre from the Graduate Center at the City University of New York. Her current book project, “Straddling Feminisms,” analyzes what she terms “post-wave pop feminism” in New York City’s contemporary experimental theatre scene. Her writing appears in Theatre Journal, Modern Drama, and TDR, and she has an article forthcoming in Contemporary Theatre Review's special issue on feminist theatre. Before joining the faculty at JMU, she taught theatre at Hunter College, Manhattan Marymount College, Montclair State University, and Drew University, and served, for four years, as a Communication Fellow at the Bernard L. Schwartz Communication Institute at Baruch College. She is the President of the Association for Theatre in Higher Education’s Women and Theatre Program. Also a performer, she presented Songs of the Second Wave—her documentary theatre piece that explores the lesbian-feminist music of the 1970s—at venues across NYC.
