Assistant Professor of Theatre Ian Borden has been elected to a three-year term on the Board of Directors of the Association for Hispanic Classical Theatre (AHCT).

The AHCT is a non-profit organization that began in 1984 to promote and foster greater appreciation for Spain’s classical drama in production. An international organization, the Association counts among its members literary scholars, theatrical directors and producers, teachers, and other aficionados of Spain’s Golden Age of Theater.

Borden teaches a variety of classes for the Johnny Carson School of Theatre and Film, from Scripts in Performance to Stage Combat. He recently directed “The Tempest” for Capitol Shakespeare, as well as “Unity (1918),” “Agravio” and “The Three Musketeers” for the Carson School. He is the founder of the Lincoln Assassination Stage Combat Workshop.

His scholarship focuses on early modern theatre, especially the interchange between the stages of England and Spain.

Borden received his MFA in acting and directing from the University of Missouri-Kansas City and a Ph.D. in theatre studies from Florida State University.
