ATHE 2014 CFP: Longing for What We've Left Behind (And Dreaming Ahead?)

updated: 
Monday, September 16, 2013 - 2:22pm
Tom Robson / ATHE Theatre History Focus Group

"Nothing's lost forever," Tony Kushner writes in Angels in America. "In this world there's a kind of painful progress. Longing for what we've left behind, and dreaming ahead." As Jill Dolan and Stacy Wolf reminded conference goers in their keynote presentation at the 2013 Mid-America Theatre Conference, most of us have at some point in our scholarly careers abandoned a research project. Be it an article, dissertation, or book, most scholars have had that project that, for whatever reason, we couldn't quite carry across the finish line. Taking its cue from ATHE 2014's conference theme "Dream Acts: Performance as Refuge, Resistance, and Renewal," this panel invites proposals addressing these abandoned projects.
