Masks, the new online journal of law and theatre, announces its launch conference at the University of British Columbia. The conference focus is on the intersections of law and theatre, including: courtroom as theatre; historical connections between theatre and the Inns of Court; lawyer playwrights; images of lawyers in popular culture; law in literature studies of plays; and legislative theatre.
The Masks Conference will be divided into three thematic days:
Day 1 – Academic Day: Scholars will present their academic papers, which we encourage be submitted to the Masks journal as well.
Day 2 – Workshop Day: This day will focus on active workshop sessions exploring all aspects of the intersection of law and theatre.
Day 3 – Community Day: The final day of the conference will be focused on community-based projects and seeks to capture innovative and groundbreaking uses of law and theatre theory and practice.
Proposals are welcomed for all days, and from all disciplinary and multi-disciplinary perspectives. Deadline for submission: February 15th, 2008.
