The Black Theatre Association (BTA), a focus group of the Association
for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE), seeks essay submissions for its
7th Annual Debut Panel. We encourage all graduate students and
non-tenured faculty working on African American theatre and performance
studies who have never presented at ATHE or a national conference to
apply. Papers may consider any aspect of African American dramatic
criticism, theatre history, plays, playwrights, performers, directors,
designers, etc. The highest quality papers will be selected by our
distinguished panel of theatre scholar judges: Harry J. Elam, Jr., Olive
H. Palmer Professor in the Humanities and Chair of the Drama Department
(Stanford University); Sandra G. Shannon, Professor of English (Howard
University) and co-editor of Theatre Topics; and David Krasner,
Associate Professor of Theatre Studies, African American Studies, and
English (Yale University). Accepted panelists will present their papers
at the ATHE conference, July 26-29, 2007, in New Orleans, Louisiana. =20
