CALL FOR PAPERS:
American Theatre and Drama Society / Modern Language Association
Deadline: March 15, 2012
The American Theatre and Drama Society invites proposals for papers for two panels at the 2013 Modern Language Associationconference, which will be held January 3-6, 2013 in Boston, Massachusetts. The deadline for submitting your proposal to the ATDS (email@example.com) is March 15, 2012. Rather than fixing topics beforehand, I invite work that broadly aligns with the presidential theme set by Michael Bérubé, “Avenues of Access.”
Proposals might approach theatre, performance, or drama studies by way of (but not limited to) the following topics:
- Disability studies
- Archival methodologies and historical access
- Practices of empowerment and access
- Genealogies of access or lack of access
- Politics of access in academic performance/theatre/drama studies
Submission: Please submit 300-word proposals electronically as Word attachments to Peter Reed, Assistant Professor of English, University of Mississippi (firstname.lastname@example.org). Proposals should also include a 1-page CV and proposer’s name, email address, telephone number(s), academic affiliation. The deadline is March 15, 2012.
Membership: As an affiliated organization, the ATDS is guaranteed one panel and the opportunity to compete for an additional panel. In order to participate in either of these panels, you must be a member of both MLA and ATDS by April 7, 2012.
