CALL FOR PAPERS!
Theatre History Focus Group
Debut Panel 2012
The Theatre History Focus Group (THFG) of the Association for Theatre in
Higher Education (ATHE) invites submissions for its debut panel from
scholars who have neither published articles nor previously presented at
ATHE. The deadline for submissions is March 15, 2012.
Papers must address the history of theatre practice, but the parameters
are broad. Active engagement with historiographical methodologies,
theory, and/or dramatic literature is encouraged. Papers engaging
explicitly with the conference theme “Performance As/Is Civil Engagement”
and incorporating transnational or non-Western perspectives are
especially desired. THFG remains committed to giving voice to a
diversity of methodological approaches and geographical emphases.
Submissions will be evaluated by a jury of three theatre scholars and
the top three papers will be presented at the national conference in
Washington, D.C. Papers should be standard conference length for a
twenty-minute presentation (8-10 pages). Those selected should plan to
attend the conference in Washington, D.C. this August. More information
may be found at http://www.athe.org.
Please send your paper as a .pdf email attachment to THFG Vice-Chair
Charlotte McIvor at firstname.lastname@example.org with “THFG Debut Panel” in the
subject line. Please do NOT put your name on the paper. However, in the
body of your email message please indicate the title of your paper, your
name, institution, address, telephone, and e-mail address. Winners will
be notified by May 30.
Panelists will receive a $150 honorarium to help defray the cost of
