AAP CFP for ATHE 2015

Posted By Siyuan Liu, University of British Columbia, Tuesday, September 30, 2014
Updated: Tuesday, September 30, 2014

The Association for Asian Performance

invites panel proposals and/or individual paper proposals for

the Association of Theatre in Higher Education 2015 conference

 

 

Conference Dates and Location

July 30—August 2, 2015

Montréal, Québec, Canada

Fairmont The Queen Elizabeth Hotel

 

Conference Theme

Information from

 

Je me souviens [I Remember]: We invite you to continue to dream as we look towards our 2015 Conference in Montréal.  Quebec’s simple but provocative motto, which is not without controversy over interpretation, caught the imaginations of the members of your 2015 Conference Committee—both metaphorically and geographically.  For ATHE’s members, in the broadest sense, it invokes thoughts of remembering—remembering theatre at its best, when its immediacy and humanness is embraced, remembering our past and how it points to the future, and remembering our power to instigate change.

As most ATHE members will cross the national border of Canada and the provincial border of Quebec—which is recognized as a nation within Canada, and onto territory claimed by the First Nations Iroquois people, “Je me souviens” [I remember] can be defined by considerations of place as well. Issues of country/isolation/assimilation that began in Phoenix, as well as acts of revolt/revolution, quiet and otherwise, give rise to consideration of the silences, the unsaid, the gestures, the sub-text, the dangers, the misunderstandings, the non-discursive in the “in-between” terrain between cultures, countries, and constituencies in Canada and beyond.  Building on this, we can also embrace inter/trans-national and inter/trans-cultural exchanges in performance texts, process, or production. 

 

 

Submitting Session Proposals

 

Session proposals should be submitted online using the forms posted on the ATHE website <http://www.athe.org/?2015SessProp_1>.

 

Online session proposals must be completed by November 1, 2014.  Only complete proposals will be considered by ATHE.

 

All technology requests must be included in your completed online proposal.

 

Payment is not due Nov. 1.  Grant funding should cover costs, but you must apply by Nov. 1.

 

It is important to forward a copy of your completed proposal to Xing Fan (stars.fan@utoronto.ca) for planning purposes, especially for AV requests.  There is no guarantee that AAP can provide funding for AV requests.  The AAP must know of all AV requests in order to help you secure funding.  (See below).

 

 

Submitting Individual Papers

 

For individual papers, please e-mail ideas you have to Xing Fan (stars.fan@utoronto.ca), by Oct. 18, 2014 so that she can attempt to match you with other interested parties to form panels.  

 

Multi-disciplinary panels are encouraged.  The 2015 Conference Committee has changed the number of required sponsors for a multidisciplinary proposal to two Focus Groups or two Committees or a combination of both.  You may propose more than two sponsors, but it is not required.  As always, each group must be contacted and approve the submission with their names attached.

 

General questions can also be addressed to Siyuan (Steven) Liu (siyuan.liu@ubc.ca), Association for Asian Performance Focus Group Representative.

 

 

Conference Grant and Audiovisual Information

 

Requests must be submitted online by November 1, in order to be considered.

 

ATHE members proposing 2015 conference sessions can take advantage of the following:

· One free piece of AV equipment from the following list:

o LCD Package (LCD projector and Screen)

o Audio for Laptop

o CD Player and speakers

o Flip Chart

If Session Coordinators want to select Internet and additional AV, the following costs will apply to each piece:

· Internet ($300)

· LCD Package (LCD projector and Screen) ($300)

· CD Player ($100)

· Flip Chart ($50) 

· Audio for Laptop ($100)

You MUST select audiovisual needs for your session while proposing it (*proposals due November 1).  No additional AV may be ordered after this date.

 

What does this mean to the Session Coordinator, the person proposing a session?  It means that you can select an LCD package and NOT apply for a grant to pay for it.  If you select an additional piece of AV equipment, you can apply for a grant or send payment to the ATHE office by May 1.  As an example, if the Session Coordinator selects a complimentary LCD package and a second selection of audio for a laptop, then s/he can apply for a $100 grant for the audio.

 

The total amount of grant money available for each session is still $500.  This includes additional AV, travel or hotel costs for non-university guest presenters, other requests (piano, copying materials, etc.)  and guest passes.

 

 

Review of Deadlines

 

Individual Papers Deadline: October 18, 2014; submit directly to Xing Fan (stars.fan@utoronto.ca).

 

Session Proposal Deadline: November 1, 2014; online at

 

Grant Request Deadline: November 1, 2014; online at .
