Association for Asian Performance
12th Annual Conference

August 1-2, 2012 Washington, D.C.


The AAP conference is a two-day event, to be held at the Hyatt Regency in Washington, D.C., preceding and during the annual ATHE (Association for Theatre in Higher Education) conference. The keynote speaker this year will be Richard Nichols.

AAP invites submissions for the poster session portion of the AAP conference.
The poster session is a new feature of the AAP conference that had great success during its first year in 2011. This unique session allows both junior and senior scholars to share research in a more informal atmosphere that fosters conversation. It is an especially excellent format for young scholars (students), as well as for established scholars trying a new direction in their research. When possible, AAP will pair each presenter with a specialist who is able to act as a respondent.

The format of the poster session encourages presenters to have prepared a short overview of their research that they can give in addition to a more informal conversation. Presenters are asked to bring a tri-fold standing poster to showcase the research and main ideas. Presenters may bring along audio/visual material as well on a laptop, as AAP regrettably would not be able to provide a projector or speakers for each individual presenter.

Proposals should include the following:
1. Title
2. Name and a short bio of the presenter(s)
3. Affiliation, specialization (field/region), mailing address, phone numbers and e-mail address for the presenter.
4. A short abstract (100-200 words) describing the topic of the research.

Proposals should be emailed to the organizer for the poster session, Jennifer Goodlander at: JennGoodlander at

Feel free to contact Jennifer with any questions as well.

Presenters will be notified by June 10, 2012 of their acceptance.

All presenters are expected to join AAP. Membership is $40 per year ($25 for students) and includes a subscription to the Asian Theatre Journal (
