CALL FOR PARTICIPANTS: THEATRE HISTORY ANTHOLOGY ROUNDTABLE
For the 2013 ATHE Conference in Orlando we hope to present a roundtable on what play anthologies people are using while teaching theatre history/dramatic literature survey courses. Many of us teach these survey courses, and we know that the wide range of possible anthologies to adopt can be overwhelming. For that reason we hope to spotlight as many anthologies as possible to generate conversation and provide information to our colleagues.
If you would be interested in participating in this year's Theatre History pedagogy roundtable, please contact me with the following information:

Over the last thirty years there has been an increasing interest in media, arts, and culture as means to understand the national experience. The complexity of social, political, and economic ideas represented in comic books, videogames, online media have joined studies of television, film, and music to further complicate the "high" versus "low" culture debate that have defined academic inquiry. The Media, Arts and Culture (SIS) of the Florida Conference of Historians welcomes presentations that explore topics related to media and culture that seek to consider these vibrant changes. Papers and panels exploring comic books, fandom, film, television, media studies, technology, literature, and music are invited.
