POOR THEATRE?

In keeping with the conference theme Poor Theatre, the Pedagogy Symposium
invites proposals for complete panels, individual papers, interactive
workshops and roundtable discussions, that use notions of “Poor-ness” â€"
facilities, budgets, schedules, institutional support, student preparedness
and receptivity, etc. â€" as a frame with which consider theory, praxis and
accepted notions of “pedagogy”, “theatre”, and “performance.” The Pedagogy
Symposium also seeks to highlight, in particular, proposals which address
the state of our profession and its future in times of economic flux and
which reflect on all aspects of teaching in the broadest sense.
