"Aging and Theatre/Performance"

 

Abstracts are being accepted for a non-guaranteed panel at MLA 2019 in Chicago to be proposed jointly by the GS Drama & Performance and TC Age Studies forums. Responding to the growing interest in age/aging among theatre and performance scholars, the panel seeks papers examining any aspect of the life course from childhood to old age, in drama and performance from any time period. Any approach is welcome but should be informed by current age-studies scholarship. Send a 250-word proposal and brief CV by March 10 to both Darren Gobert (gobert@yorku.ca) and Valerie Lipscomb (lipscomb@sar.usf.edu).
