Work that integrates a creative approach to scholarly endeavors is especially encouraged.
   Competitive papers should not have been presented previously at another conference, be accepted for publication, or have been published.
   Debut: The Performance Studies Interest Group welcomes debut papers. The WSCA Executive Club Debut Award is made to the author of a paper presented at the convention by an author or co-authors “who have not presented at a state, regional, national, or international convention, or published in any academic journal.” Papers presented at student-only conferences are exempt from this requirement. All authors of a co-authored paper must meet these eligibility requirements for a paper to be considered a debut paper. Papers eligible for the Debut Award should be marked “DEBUT” in the upper right-hand corner of the title page. Please also indicate whether each author is a bachelor, masters, or doctoral student.
   All papers should be submitted by e-mail attachment. Please use MS Word or RTF for all documents. Submitted papers should include two separate attachments:
      A title page with title of paper, names of all authors, and the addresses, phone numbers, e-mail addresses, institutional affiliations of each author. Also include audio-visual requests. NOTE: Equipment availability is extremely limited. See WSCA Policy on the Use of Audio-Visual Equipment at Conventions at http://www.westcomm.org.
