CFP: [Professional] Mid America Theatre Conference 2008 Pedagogy Symposium

full name / name of organization:, PhD

Guided by the overall conference focus on THTR 2 DA MAX, the Mid America
Theatre Conference Pedagogy Symposium seeks complete panel proposals,
discussion sessions, and workshop demonstrations that somehow attend to
notions of Xtreme-ness. Given this, we encourage all submissions to push
accepted notions of “pedagogy”, “theatre”, and “performance” to their
limits by way of suggesting and sharing an array of information exchanges
(broadly defined) drawn from both within and without what might be
considered by the academy as conventional learning environments. In the end
we are looking for critical engagements that reach across boundaries, cross
disciplinary borders, and reflect upon learner-centered approaches to
creative-scholarly praxis.

First preference will be given to submissions of complete sessions (i.e.
three related papers and a designated chair). Individual papers will be
reviewed and grouped together after the consideration of full panel
proposals is complete.

Please direct proposals and queries to:

Christine Frezza Scott R. Irelan
Southern Utah University Augustana College

Email your 250 word abstract (or group of three abstracts plus a statement
of rationale for full panel proposals) as a Word document to both symposium
Co-Chairs as listed above NO LATER than 15 OCTOBER 2007. Please INCLUDE
YOUR NAME, RANK, and AFFILIATION on your Abstract. Also indicate any and
all technology needs. Please feel free to contact the Co-Chairs for points
of clarification.
