Seeking Panelists for ATHE 2018-reply today!

Posted By Irma Mayorga, Tuesday, October 31, 2017

From Beth Osborne, FSU:

 

Hello colleagues,

 I know this is a last-minute offer, but I’m wondering if anyone out there would be interested in participating in a roundtable discussion around issues of academic dishonesty in the classroom at ATHE this summer. 

I teach a large intro to theatre course and am seeing an uptick in issues this year that I’m finding very troubling. This coincides with an institutional shift that makes the consequences of even a single honor code violation more long-lasting and potentially severe (and follows a university-wide survey on student attitudes toward academic honesty that showed a sharp disparity between student and faculty philosophy). These are issues that I don’t necessarily have answers to, but that I’d like to discuss with some smart people from other institutions. Some potential questions: 

· How do honor code violations manifest in your program?

· What are the consequences of honor code violations? Are there other consequences that might be more effective? (Another way of thinking about this might be, what are our goals in determining sanctions for an offense like plagiarism?)

· What are your deciding factors between a warning and taking an infraction to the next level?

· Are you seeing any trends among students who are getting caught with this type of issue? How would you identify those trends? 

· What larger institutional issues are at stake?

· What strategies might we employ to encourage students to avoid honor code issues — especially when they may not feel “honor bound” (perhaps because they’re in a non-majors course, or a large class, or an online class)?

I’m thinking that TLA would be a good focus group fit, but am happy to entertain other possible FGs for a multidisciplinary session too.

Please reply to me at bosborne@fsu.edu (TODAY, ASAP) if you are interested!

 

Best,

Beth

Latinx, Indigenous, and the Americas ATHE Panels 2017

Posted By Noe W. Montez, Tufts University, Tuesday, July 4, 2017

Dear LIA Colleagues,

Please see the enclosed listing of the 2017 ATHE Conference Latinx, Indigenous, and the Americas Conference sessions. At present the Conference Committee hasn’t assigned room numbers, but since several of you have asked about LIA sessions, you can at least begin to mark times in your calendars. See you all in Vegas in a month’s time!

Best,

Latinx, Indigenous and the Americas Call for Officer Nominations

Posted By Noe W. Montez, Tufts University, Monday, April 3, 2017

Hey there, y'all. Tuesday is the deadline to nominate or self-nominate for an ATHE LIA leadership position. I'd love to work with so many of you all over the next couple of years. Feel free to email me with questions about the positions after reading below:

 

Descriptions of LIA offices

 

Focus Group Representative 
Technically we do not elect a Focus Group Representative. Instead, in accordance with our LIA bylaws, LIA Conference Planners ascend to this office. Therefore, LIA conference planner Noe Montez will become our Focus Group Representative following the ATHE conference. Focus Group Representatives attend all ATHE governance meetings (held during our annual conference), generate mid-year reports to the ATHE Governing Council, serve on two ATHE governance sub-committees, attend one ATHE mid-year meeting (travel and lodging paid for by ATHE), guide and manage planning and organization of ATHE conferences for LIA, organize special LIA sessions or events at ATHE conferences, help plan pre-conferences, and communicate with other Focus Groups for a wide variety of projects.

Conference Planner
The LIA Conference Planner ascends to Focus Group Representative after two years as Conference Planner. This move from planner to representative helps provide continuity within our group and also provides new conference planners with intimate working knowledge of ATHE procedures and governance for their duties and leadership as focus group rep. One thing to consider about this type of professional service is that these offices require attendance to the ATHE conference for certain elements of their duties. Therefore, anyone considering the office of conference planner should consider the need to attend ATHE conferences from 2017-21. The newly elected conference planner will be incorporated into planning for ATHE 2017 as the conference nears.
Also, we’ve always run our leadership horizontally: the focus group rep and conference planner have always co-shared, coordinated, and collaborated on most leadership duties for the conference including all conference planning, session coordination, pre-conference planning, coordination with other ATHE focus groups, and they have also shared responsibilities in addressing Governing Council tasks. Indeed, for new conference planners, the focus group rep’s knowledge about the process of our call for panels, minutia of ATHE org needs, and calendar planning, etc. is necessary. This is all to say that the Focus Group Representative and Conference Planner work in close union to organize LIA events at our national conferences.

Secretary
The responsibility of the secretary is to document the LIA membership meetings at ATHE conferences and create minutes for dissemination as well as actively gather contact information from new members at the ATHE conference.

Graduate Student Representative
Our bylaws change at last year’s conference allows for up to two people to hold this position. The Graduate Student representative assists the Focus Group Rep and Conference Planner during ATHE conferences. The Graduate Student Rep has traditionally been of vital support to our pre-conference planners and is expected to help organize and run pre-conference events during their term of service. Graduate Student reps also serve as ambassadors of LIA to other grad students at ATHE conferences.

To initiate a voting process we will need a slate of candidates. I encourage you to self-nominate or nominate a candidate. Please send your interest to me Jimmy Noriega (jnoriega@wooster.edu) and Noe Montez (noe.montez@tufts.edu) by April 4th. We will also need a 250-300 word bio of the candidate, which will be circulated to LIA members with the candidate’s name.

After we collect nominations, we will begin the online voting process. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the positions and their needs, or the voting process, please don’t hesitate to contact Jimmy and Noe with any questions.

Thank you,

Latinx, Indigenous, and the Americas Call for Panel Proposals ATHE 2017

Posted By Noe W. Montez, Tufts University, Sunday, August 28, 2016

Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) Conference 2017

Las Vegas, Nevada | August 3-6, 2017

Las Vegas Planet Hollywood Resort and Casino

Latinx, Indigenous, and the Americas Call for Panel Proposals

ATHE 2017 Conference Theme— Spectacle: Balancing Education, Theory, and Praxis

The Latinx, Indigenous, and the Americas Focus Group (LIA) of the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) invites panel proposals for the 2017 ATHE conference to be held in Las Vegas, Nevada. The theme, “Spectacle: Balancing Education, Theory, and Praxis” draws upon the city’s identity as the self-proclaimed “Entertainment Capital of the World,” and as a site of decadence in an effort to convene a conference that invites participants to examine spectacle. What are the ways in which the spectacular informs scholarship, artistry, as well as pedagogical and curricular endeavors related to theatre and performance studies? Latinx, Indigenous, and Latin American Theatre has often been grounded in making the invisible visible and calling attention to the unseemly and oppressive practices employed by politicians and those who benefit from the extravagance of neoliberalist economies. Additionally LIA is mindful of the labor of the marginalized working bodies behind the scenes of varied industries who produce spectacles on behalf of others. The theme of spectacle holds particular resonance in the 21st century university where an increasing number of theatre departments and educators are asked to create illusions of educational empowerment and opportunity while hiding the precarity of growing budget shortfalls that face programs across the country.

The subject of spectacle saturates U.S. Latinx, Latin American, and indigenous performance and scholarly projects. Although panel proposals need not explicitly conned to the theme of “Spectacle: Balancing Education, Theory, and Praxis,” LIA invites theoretical, critical, pedagogical, or creative/praxis-based session proposals and will give special attention and consideration to submissions that:

  • Propose innovative investigations of the intersections (in terms of both form of session and content of session) between spectacle and performance that concern U.S. Latinx, Latin American, and indigenous populations and their cultural productions.
  • Convene conversations/sessions that propose discussions that adamantly seek to cross-pollinate the conversation among U.S. Latinx, Latin American, and indigenous performance topics, objects of study, and theoretical ideas.
  • Offer panels/sessions that are multidisciplinary in nature: that utilize session participants from diverse ATHE Focus Groups or offer panels comprised of participants from separate institutions.
  • Offer panels/sessions with no more than four participants (not including a session Chair, which would constitute the fifth person on the panel). Panel/session proposals with no more than four scheduled participants will be given leading priority for selection.
  • Offer practice-based/creative ideas that engage the topic of spectacle directly.
  • Incorporate vibrant and non-traditional methodological approaches to paper presentations and creative/practice-based approaches to conference presentations/discussions. 

SUBMISSION DEADLINES

As noted at the 2016 Membership Meeting, Jimmy Noriega and Noe Montez are taking on a greater curatorial role in procuring conference panels for the 2017 Conference. We hope to make the panels more inclusive and accessible to members of the Focus Group, or to outsiders who are new to ATHE, and want to participate with us. Consequently, we ask that you submit conference panel proposals to us in advance, so that we can then create a list of potential LIA panels that will be placed on the ATHE webpage and the group’s Facebook page.

·       Proposals for Panels, September 30, 2016. Please submit a two to three sentence-length proposal for a 2016 panel to Jimmy Noriega (jnoriega@wooster.edu) and Noe Montez (noe.montez@gmail.com). The list of potential ATHE panels will be immediately compiled and posted on all channels of communication (ATHE Webpage, Facebook) so that interested parties may submit papers for the session coordinator’s consideration. If you already have panelists committed to your session, please let us know that when you submit materials. Please also let us and other FG conference planners know if you plan on submitting a multidisciplinary panel. Session coordinators who do not submit their panel proposals before this deadline risk not being ranked or being placed at the bottom of our order when Jimmy and Noe submit information to the conference committee. Proposing a panel does not guarantee that the panel will be accepted to the conference, as the ATHE conference committee makes the ultimate determination of how many panels LIA will receive.

 

·       Submit Papers for Panels: October 15, 2016 Please submit your paper proposals to panels that seem to be viable fits for your work. Do not submit papers to more than two panels, as ATHE requires that someone not participate in more than two panels within the conference. Panel proposers will then decide which paper proposals best serve the goals of their sessions.

 

·       Complete Sessions/Panels: November 1, 2016. Submit your session proposal directly to ATHE online at www.athe.org — more information about procedures on LIA ATHE blog site: http://www.athe.org/blogpost/1090161/Latino-Latina-Focus-Group

 

·       ++ Please submit a separate copy of your completed proposal to Conference Planner Noe Montez at noe.montez@gmail.com when you submit your ATHE online proposal. This allows LIA to help curate your session through the submission process.

Participation by presenters in LIA has grown tremendously over the past few years. Therefore, selecting from our many submissions becomes a challenging process for conference planners as the process becomes more competitive. As our membership grows we cannot guarantee that panels (and single paper submissions) will be accepted, particularly if they include formatting errors including a lack of paper titles or clear thematic cohesion. With limited spacing available, we offer the following advice to help you plan your submissions:

  • Make sure your session is in compliance with submission instructions (see ATHE’s website for further information). Do not leave details out of your proposal since this may affect your submission’s ranking. Also, be specific in your paper abstracts and panel descriptions. 
  • Offer full, cohesive panel sessions of paper presentations (as opposed to individuals offering single paper submissions for consideration). Single paper submissions will not necessarily be able to find a secure position in this year’s LIA conference selections.
  • We strongly encourage potential participants to have conversations for forming panels and finding possible panel participants with both Jimmy Noriega, LIA Focus Group Representative, (jnoriega@wooster.edu) and Noe Montez, LIA Conference Planner, (noe.montez@gmail.com) early in the process.
  • We also encourage potential participants to participate in the dialogue and seek collaboration using the LIA ATHE blog site: http://www.athe.org/group/LFG 

A NOTE ON COMMUNICATION

ATHE hosts focus group “pages” or “forums” where focus groups post all information and communications. Joining the LIA forum page is easy. Registered, dues paying ATHE members will obtain full functionality of the new website. Non-members can also access particular elements of the site (see below).

ACTING OUT: A SYMPOSIUM ON INDIGENOUS PERFORMANCE ART, December 3-4

Posted By Daniel Banks, DNAWORKS, Tuesday, October 13, 2015
Please come to New Mexico to join us for this extraordinary event! 

December 3-December 4, 2015
ACTING OUT: A SYMPOSIUM ON INDIGENOUS PERFORMANCE ART
Acting O U T: A Symposium on Indigenous Performance Art
December 3 – 4, 2015

Acting O U T: A Symposium on Indigenous Performance Art, organized and hosted by the IAIA Museum of Contemporary Native Arts in partnership with the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture, the New Mexico Museum of Art and the Lensic Performing Arts Center take place on December 3 – 4th, 2015. Keynote Discussion and performances at the Lensic Performing Arts Center take place Friday, December 4, 2015, 6 – 8pm. This symposium is made possible in part by a grant from the New Mexico Humanities Council.

Over the past 42 years, MoCNA has gained national and international acclaim for its innovative exhibitions, symposia, events, and programs of contemporary Native art. MoCNA will lead in the discourse and understanding of contemporary Native art with an interactive symposium in Santa Fe, New Mexico. This will be the first international symposium on Indigenous performance art to take place in New Mexico. Acting O U T recognizes the increasing importance and relevance of performance art—and its vanguard history—within Native and contemporary art. Symposium participants will include leading performance artists, scholars, curators, and writers working in the field today, in dialogue with the local, national, and international audiences. Participants include: Rebecca Belmore, Guillermo Gómez-Peña, James Luna, Lucy Lippard, Lori Blondeau, Adrian Stimson, and Spiderwoman Theater to name a few.

The schedule:

On December 3, symposium and workshops will be held at the Museum of Indian Arts and Culture. The first of three panel discussions, titled Performing for the Camera will be presented on that day as well as performance video screenings, the workshop/performance art intensives include: Words + Actions: led by Guillermo Gómez-Peña and Rebecca Belmore, and Sound + Performance: led by the Indigenous art collective Postcommodity. Speakers and panelists are invited to attend the workshops free of charge – 20 spaces will be available for community participants.

On December 4, the symposium will be held at the St. Francis Auditorium at the New Mexico Museum of Art. Panels are structured around topics of particular urgency to performance art practitioners today, including the impact and politics of using your body as a medium for art; the implications of performing in specific sites; and potential shifts in the field relative to new methodologies in art and social engagement. Summary and observations will follow at the end of the day.

At 6p.m.on December 4, internationally acclaimed artists James Luna (with Sheila Tishla Skinner), Guillermo Gómez-Peña, and Rebecca Belmore will perform for one-night only in Santa Fe at the Lensic Performing Arts Center. For more than 30 years, James Luna has provocatively explored the Native American experience and has created some of the most iconic artworks of our time. McArthur Award recipient, Guillermo Gómez-Peña’s spoken word and actions engage notions of the “living archive” and radical citizenship. Rebecca Belmore’s performances activate the charged space between the personal and the political, memory and trauma. Following the performances is a keynote discussion between the artists led by writer, activist, and curator Lucy Lippard.
