American Association for Theatre in Higher Education Theatre History Focus Group

The Theatre History Focus Group (THFG) of the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) invites submissions for its debut panel from scholars who have neither published articles nor previously presented at ATHE. The deadline for submissions is March 15, 2012.

Papers must address the history of theatre practice, but the parameters are broad. Active engagement with historiographical methodologies, theory, and/or dramatic literature is encouraged. Papers engaging explicitly with the conference theme "Performance As/Is Civil Engagement" and incorporating transnational or non-Western perspectives are especially desired. THFG remains committed to giving voice to a diversity of methodological approaches and geographical emphases.

It has become apparent with the sixth anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, and the tenth anniversary of 9/11, that major traumatic events continue to resonate in both the individual and social consciousness - perhaps more in the 21st century than ever before. Remembering, rethinking, reworking, and reimagining are just a few of the ways in which authors and artists, historians and critics, audiences and citizens have explored their own traumatic experiences, as well as the traumatic events that continue to impact larger communities.

"Violence commands both literature and life, and violence is often crude and distorted." – Ellen Glasgow

Violence is an ever-present phenomenon in literary texts. From Homer's graphic descriptions of infantry combat in the Iliad, to Wilfred Owen's haunting portrayal of the war-torn fields of Europe, to Edith Wharton's subtle critique of Old New York as a place of ruthless social warfare, representations of violence powerfully call our attention to questions of authority, agency and power.
