NYU's Program in Educational Theatre invites you to submit a proposal for
our sixth annual forum, entitled Theatre Pedagogy: Teaching the Art Form
which will be held in New York City, Thursday April 23rd through Sunday
April 26th, 2009. Our program has been a leader in investigating and
engaging in the teaching of theatre for the past four decades. Currently,
through our extensive curricular offerings (which range from
undergraduate to doctoral programs of study), we, as practitioners, are
constantly exploring new ways to reinvigorate our pedagogical approaches
to keep them both vital and innovative. For more information about NYU's
Program in Educational Theatre, please visit our website:

What are we waiting for? What awaits us? While often dismissed as a period of wastefulness or
lost time, waiting may also intensify experience and become a condition in which to consider

Call for Papers

THE PHILOSOPHY OF ROBERT ALTMAN

Edited by James B. South
Series Editor: Mark T. Conard

Robert Altman was one of the most influential and controversial American directors of the last 40
years. Rising to prominence in 1970 with the release of MASH, Altman produced a body of work
distinguished by an exploration and expansion of the possibilities of genre, sensitivity to
character, emphasis on overlapping dialogue and multi-layered soundtracks, and a collaborative
approach to filmmaking. These characteristic features make Altman’s films uniformly
challenging.

the neighborhood, in the classroom, with your family and with your peers?
Are you struggling to find your true self that is comfortable in all
settings and situations?

Anthony David Barker

The price of oil fluctuates dramatically, airlines merge, travel agencies
go bankrupt and our carbon footprints deepens, but the hope remains that
people will be as addicted as ever to foreign travel. And countries like
Portugal, for whom tourism is the biggest driver of the economy, have to
believe that this continues through what promises to be a difficult next
few years. In a European context, more and more citizens of this continent
are crossing one another’s frontiers, tourist travel often being a prelude
to a longer and deeper acquaintance with the visited country. How many
trips result in people living, working and retiring abroad? Life-long
