Call for Abstracts on “New Directions on Improvisation”

 

For the 2018 Comparative Drama Conference, there will be a sub-theme of improv running through the three days. On Thursday night we will be attending an improv performance at SAK Comedy Lab. On Saturday afternoon there will be a plenary dedicated to improv. To round out the conference, we invite papers for either a panel (or if we get enough interest a round table) on new directions in improv, as we look to consider how improv pushes boundaries within performance, the process of dramatic creation, and the text.

 

Some possible topics to consider (but definitely not limited to):

 

Humanities through the Ages

updated: 
Tuesday, October 10, 2017 - 9:48am
Humanities Education and Research Association [HERA]
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, January 25, 2018

The HERA conference program committee invites proposals for presentations at the 2018 conference. The program committee’s theme is designed to incorporate any and all possible connotations: the history and development of the humanities, the changes in the humanities over time, the triumphs of and threats to the humanities, the importance of the humanities, the challenges to the humanities. Also included within the theme is the idea of humanities and humanities education being enriched and enlivened by commitment and dedication from all age levels, spanning the lives of individuals as well as history.

During Office Hours
deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, November 30, 2017

During Office Hours, a new website for teachers in higher education, is looking for usable teaching related content. We want to collect, share, and archive all the ideas, information, best practices, and advice that you’ve accumulated during your teaching careers. Whether you’re a seasoned veteran or a new teacher, a tenured professor or an adjunct or a TA, we hope that everyone can contribute to and benefit from this site.

The easiest way to describe what we’re looking for is to think about what we do during office hours: prepare, plan, reflect, and problem solve (to name a few). We want what you already have: your tried and tested methods, tips, techniques, handouts, assignments, advice, and ideas.
