ATHE Theatre History Focus Group
Debut Panel 2013

The Theatre History Focus Group (THFG) of the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) invites submissions for its debut panel from scholars who have neither published articles nor previously presented at ATHE. The deadline for submissions is March 8, 2013.

Papers must address the history of theatre practice, but the parameters are broad. Active engagement with historiographical methodologies, theory, and/or dramatic literature is encouraged. Papers engaging explicitly with the conference theme “P[L]AY: Performance, Pleasure and Pedagogy” and incorporating transnational or non-Western perspectives are especially desired. THFG remains committed to giving voice to a diversity of methodological approaches and geographical emphases.

Submissions will be evaluated by a jury of three theatre scholars and the top three papers will be presented at the national conference in Orlando, FL. Papers should be standard conference length for a twenty-minute presentation (8-10 pages). Those selected should plan to attend the conference in Orlando, FL this August. More information may be found at http://www.athe.org.

Please send your paper as a .pdf email attachment to THFG Vice-Chair Charlotte McIvor at charlotte.mcivor@nuigalway.ie with “THFG Debut Panel” in the subject line. Please do NOT put your name on the paper. However, in the body of your email message please indicate the title of your paper, your name, institution, address, telephone, and e-mail address. Winners will be notified by May 1.

Panelists will receive a $150 honorarium to help defray the cost of conference attendance.
