CALL FOR PAPERS
"Parables in Drama"
Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) Conference
July 26-29, 2007
Parables and drama, and specifically parables in drama, work performatively
to "redescribe" the world as we know it and force the audience to perform a
redescription of reality. They deserve our attention for the ways in which the
self and our world are constructed and deconstructed. But most especially,
parables in drama consider layers of readings that highlight what the best of
both genres have to offer.
