The ATDS invites proposals on the broad theme of "Performance and Memory," to be considered for the ATDS's sponsored panel(s) at the 2015 MLA convention in Vancouver (Jan 8-11 2015).

Following the MLA's 2015 theme, "Negotiating Sites of Memory," we encourage submissions to consider their fit with one of the theme's three keywords. Submissions, for example, might consider connections between performance and some of the following ideas:

Negotiating: conflicts, struggles, power differentials, interpellations, and resistance
Sites: geographies, locales, networks, places, and spaces
Memory: histories, memorials, acts of forgetting, erasure, and amnesia

Please submit a 250-word abstract and a 1-page CV as electronic (word document preferred) by 8 March 2014 to Associate Professor Peter Reed, University of Mississippi (preed@olemiss.edu).
