The Latino/a Focus Group of the Association
for Theatre in Higher Education
(ATHE) invites submissions for its competitively selected Debut
Panel from
scholars who have not yet published articles or presented at
a national
conference. The postmark deadline for submissions is February 1, 2007.
Papers should be an appropriate length for a fifteen-minute presentation
(typically about eight pages) and address Latino/a American or Latin
American subject matter. Transnational, comparative, and diasporic
approaches are welcome.

Both graduate students and faculty members are eligible to submit.
 A jury
of theatre scholars will evaluate the submissions and select three papers to
be presented at the conference. Tamara Underiner, Associate Professor,
Arizona State University and Jorge Huerta, Professor, University of
California, San Diego, will moderate the discussion at the conference. This
scholarly exchange will provide an excellent mentorship opportunity for
emerging scholars. Students and faculty members from non-performance based
departments are encouraged to submit work.

Authors of selected papers will
read them at the 21st annual ATHE
conference, ³Regenerations: Theatre and Performance as a Regenerative Force,
with New Orleans as the Reference Point² which will be held July 26-29th,
2007 in New Orleans, LA.

presenters must register and pay the appropriate fees for the
conference. Conference presenters should be ATHE members unless they
