CFP: [Theatre] Money and Economic Exchange in American Theatre

updated: 
Saturday, May 31, 2008 - 7:43pm
Jon Dietrick

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/or
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
