Call for Papers - Philadelphia Theatre Research Symposium
Production Concept and Performance Analysis
January 16 2009
The Philadelphia Theatre Research Symposium is seeking abstracts for papers for our third
annual gathering of theatre scholars. This year's PTRS seeks to highlight the work of new scholars
in the area of production concept and performance studies. This symposium offers the
opportunity to present work in progress and to share ideas with other researchers. We are
seeking papers which engage a broad range of topics in theatre and drama studies including,
performance analysis, gender, politics, and cultural theory.
We are proud to announce that this yearâ€™s symposium will launch an accompanying journal. This
journal will provide a publishing opportunity for some of the papers presented. This journal will
include established scholars but seeks to create publishing opportunities for new scholars and
interesting practioners in the area of theatre and drama.
Abstracts of 250 words or less should be submitted to Dr. David Cregan at
The deadline for submission is December 10, 2008.
Our keynote this year will be Blanka Zizka the artistic director of the Wilma Theatre in
Philadelphia. The Wilma Theatre is a leading Philadelphia theatre dedicated to daring and
thoughtful productions. Find out more at www.wilmatheater.org.
