ASTR 2018 Call for Proposals Now Open


ASTR 2018 Call for Proposals Now Open

The sun will be shining, the beaches will beckon, and we’ll all be aroused to think, talk, and act. Please consider submitting a plenary or working session for ASTR 2018 – Arousal: Theatre, Performance, Embodiment. We especially invite working sessions or other collaborative working formats that include off-site components, allowing San Diego to arouse new connections between ideas and between scholars in real time and space. The conference committee has set aside some funds to support off-site working groups; please use the special working session form to tell us your plans and set a budget for how you will move out of the hotel and into this border city.

The deadline for proposals is February 1, 2018.

Arousal is a crucial element of what performance does and how performance means. Whether we are painfully or pleasantly aroused, performance moves and changes us. Join us in San Diego in November to be moved and changed!
