In keeping with the conference theme Poor Theatre, the Pedagogy Symposium
invites proposals for complete panels, individual papers, interactive
workshops and roundtable discussions, that use notions of “Poor-ness” â€"
facilities, budgets, schedules, institutional support, student preparedness
and receptivity, etc. â€" as a frame with which consider theory, praxis and
accepted notions of “pedagogy”, “theatre”, and “performance.” The Pedagogy
Symposium also seeks to highlight, in particular, proposals which address
the state of our profession and its future in times of economic flux and
which reflect on all aspects of teaching in the broadest sense.

Proposals of complete sessions (i.e. three related papers and a designated
chair, or workshops) will be given highest priority; individual papers will
be reviewed and grouped together only after the consideration of full panel
proposals is complete. In the end we seek to craft a diverse and balanced
roster of sessions that will be environments for critical engagements that
reach across boundaries, cross disciplinary borders, and reflect upon
collaborative approaches to creative-scholarly praxis.

Direct your proposals (250 word abstract or group of three abstracts plus a
statement of rationale for full panel proposals) by email to the Pedagogy
Symposium Co-Chairs named below. Proposals should be attached to your
email as MSWord documents, and must be received NO LATER than 15 OCTOBER
2008. Be sure to INCLUDE YOUR NAME, RANK, and AFFILIATION on your
Abstract(s), and indicate any and all technology needs. Please feel free
to contact the Co-Chairs for points of clarification.
