The Latino/a Focus Group of the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) invites submissions from scholars who have not yet published articles or presented at a national conference for its competitively debut panel at the 2010 ATHE Conference. The theme of the conference is "Theatre Alive: Theater, Media, and Survival” and it takes place at the Hyatt Century Plaza Hotel, Los Angeles, CA, August 3- 6, 2010. Both graduate students and faculty members are eligible to submit. The deadline for submission is March 22, 2010. Papers should be an appropriate length for a 20-minute presentation (typically 10 pages or less) and address Latino/a American or Latin American subject matter. While we welcome all panels and papers that address the conference theme broadly, we also encourage submissions that address other disciplinary questions. Transnational, comparative, and diasporic approaches are welcome.
A jury of theatre scholars will evaluate the submissions and select two papers to be presented at the conference as a part of Curtain Up: Conversation Among Emerging Scholars, jointly conducted with the Black Theatre Association (BTA) and the American Theatre and Drama Society (ATDS). This innovative format will allow greater dialogue among emerging scholars across the range of American theater and performance imagined continentally. David Román, Professor of English and American Studies and Ethnicity at the University of Southern California and Adam Versényi, Distinguished Professor of Dramatic Art at the University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill will serve as judges for the competition. Students and faculty members from non-performance based departments are encouraged to submit work.
All presenters must register and pay the appropriate fees for the conference. Conference presenters should be ATHE members unless they work outside the academic study of theatre. For information on the conference (including applicable costs), and the Latino Focus Group see http://www.athe.org.
