CALL FOR PAPERS: ATHE 2010
August 3-August 6, 2010
Los Angeles, CA
The Latino/a Focus Group (LFG) of the Association of Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) invites complete panel proposals and individual paper proposals for ATHEs 2010 conference. The theme this year is Theatre Alive: Theatre, Media, and Survival. The LFG is particularly interested in panels that consider new artistic, teaching, and research methodologies. We encourage panels and papers that bring together scholars and artists in dialogue, and alternative and innovative formats. While we welcome all panels and papers that address the conference theme broadly, we also encourage submissions that address (but are not limited to) the following subjects:
Intersections and Interactions: Latina/o and Latin American Theatre and performance across disciplines, such as media and communication studies, affect studies, trauma studies, peace and conflict studies, human rights studies, to name a few.
Issues concerning linguistic and cultural translation and interpretation, the praxis of translation, the challenges in writing translation for performance and performing plays in translation.
Latina/o dance, choreography and choreographers
Theorizing Latina/o and Latin American theatre and performance within and across various ethnic, racial, cultural, and geographic divides.
Latinas/os on Hollywood and Broadway
Historicizing theater companies in California, especially Los Angeles
Transnationalism and globalization and diaspora
The Fringe as the Center: Latina/o Plays and Playwrights in the 21st Century
Reflections, interventions, and re-imaginings regarding the field of theatre and performance studies in relation to Latina/o and Latin American Theatre and Performance.
Practical concerns with the pedagogy of Latina/o and Latin American Theatre: Producing, Directing, and Teaching Plays in educational settings.
Complete panel proposals should be submitted on-line using the ATHE website (http://www.athe.org) by Nov. 1, 2009, but we encourage all individuals who are considering submitting a panel to contact the Latina/o Focus Group Conference Planner, Patricia Herrera (email@example.com) well before the deadline so that the efforts of the focus group can be coordinated. Only complete panel proposals will be considered.
Individual paper proposals for consideration for placement on a panel sponsored by the Latina/o Focus Group require a 250-word abstract (along with contact information and AV needs) e-mailed to the Latino Focus Group Conference Planner, Patricia Herrera (firstname.lastname@example.org) by October 15, 2008. Placement on a panel sponsored by the focus group does not guarantee acceptance by the conference.
Please read the instructions below so as to best prepare your paper or panel proposal.
1. You are encouraged to use the ATHE-LFG listserve (email@example.com ) in order to circulate panel proposals, paper ideas, to ask questions and to brainstorm ideas.
