American Society for Theatre Research Conference


Please remember that February 1st is the deadline for submitting plenary session, curated panel, and working session proposals for ASTR’s conference in Atlanta this November 16-19. Please visit ASTR’s 2017 conference page to find an expanded description of this year’s theme—“Extra/Ordinary Bodies: Interrogating the Performance and Aesthetics of ‘Difference’”—as well as links to the online proposal forms: 2017 Call for Proposals

The Program Committee is also accepting submissions for the second José Esteban Muñoz Targeted Research Working Session. These competitive, funded, three-year working sessions aim to support, promote, and feature the production of research by and about people of color. You can find a description of this initiative, as well as the proposal form, here: ASTR’S JOSÉ ESTEBAN MUÑOZ GRANT

The Program Chairs and I encourage you to think creatively about how your work connects with this year’s theme and to submit a proposal by the February 1st deadline.

We look forward to seeing you in Atlanta in November.
