Proudly Announces the
Robert A. Schanke Theatre Research Award
The Theatre History Symposium of the Mid-America Theatre Conference is
proud to announce an exciting new opportunity for tenure-track theatre
historians. Through a generous donation, Dr. Robert A. Schanke, Professor
Emeritus of Theatre at Central College in Iowa, Former Editor of Theatre
History Studies, and long-time leader of MATC, has established a theatre
research competition among those scholars whose work is accepted for
presentation at the Mid-America Theatre Conference, beginning with the
March 2005 conference in Kansas City, MO.
Assistant Professors in tenure track positions who have never published in
a refereed journal are eligible for the award. The MATC participant whose
work best demonstrates distinguished achievement in theatre research,
writing, and presentation will receive an award of $250, have their essay
published in Theatre History Studies, and be recognized at the MATC Awards
Interested scholars should submit their paper proposals to the Theatre
History Symposium according to the guidelines available at
In an accompanying cover letter, the candidate should note that s/he wishes

Award. Candidates for the Award must submit a completed paper by February
