Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE)
invites paper submissions for its 5th annual
preconference, entitled "Regeneration and Return:

July 25-26. As generations of performance studies
scholars turn – and return – to New Orleans, we seek a
variety of proposals that address the panel topic
described below. While the city of New Orleans is
central to many of the questions presented here, we
welcome scholarship that employs various methodologies
and geographic points of entry.
