[UPDATE] Scenography and Borders: Practice, Place and Politics

updated: 
Tuesday, April 12, 2016 - 7:51am
full name / name of organization: 
Theatre and Performance Research Association

The Scenography Working Group invites proposals for our forthcoming meeting at the annual TaPRA conference in Bristol in September 2016. This year's meeting will focus on questions around the importance of place and national identity in scenography, current international politics around borders and migration, and the question of disciplinary borders in relation to scenography.

Thea Brejzek has described scenography as a "transdisciplinary practice of the design of performative space [that] can no longer be assigned to a singular genre…" (2011, 8) and this leads to a discussion of disciplinary border crossings, giving the increasing critical consensus around scenography's interdisciplinarity.

The development of ethnic literature epitomizes the complex relationship among literature, culture, and politics in a society. The recent immigration crisis from Asia and Africa to Europe has posed new questions for academia. Are current theories on ethnicity, race, and nationality still helpful in explaining the identity of these migrants? What do ethnicity and ethnic literature mean at this historical juncture? How do we view the relationship among ethnic literature, diaspora, and globalization?

Graduate students—especially those working as teaching assistants—take on a unique role at the university in that they must constantly navigate among their student-teacher-scholar identities. This MMLA Special Session invites submissions that explore graduate student identity, especially as it relates to the conference theme of "border states." What happens, for example, when graduate students attempt to inhabit the space(s) between their student-teacher-scholar identities—the "border states" of their academic selves? How do graduate students navigate, create, and cross borders within the university?
