The theatrical performance is at once the most "real" of the arts and the most radically deceptive -
qualities that have made it a uniquely suited medium for exploring the subject of money, itself a
locus of anxieties concerning "hard" and "soft" value, presence and absence, the real and the
symbolic. The proposed panel welcomes papers that explore the subjects of money and economic
exchange in American theatre. Please send 250-500-word abstract (in body of e-mail) to Jon
Dietrick of Babson College at jdietrick_at_babson.edu by 9/15/08. NEMLA conference Boston 2/26-
