Focus Groups T-W: Theatre History

Theatre History

The Theatre History Focus Group promotes the study of theatre history within universities and colleges. Our goals include encouraging and inspiring scholarly exchange and production; cultivating the lively discussion of ideas pertaining to the discipline of theatre history; providing opportunities for members to communicate results of their research to one another and the larger theatre community; and fostering dialogues with other areas of study.

Thank you to everyone who dreamed with us at ATHE 2014 in Scottsdale. As this amazing conference comes to a close, we want to especially acknowledge all of those who volunteered their time to organize this conference. In the days to come check this space for a full reflection on our time in Arizona, and keep your eyes open for our Call for Papers for ATHE 2015 in Montreal!

Joelle R. Arp-Dunham, Circle Ensemble Theatre Company wrote on the Focus Groups T-W: Theatre History wall: Please pass this call on to any graduate student directors in your programs. How Will Graduate Students Revolutionize Directing? For this proposal, we are looking for graduate students whose work will soon help revolutionize theatre pedagogy and practice: that means all of us! What exercises, approaches, methodologies, or analyses can you share that will contribute to the change that each new academic brings? We are looking for a number of students to present in a round-table/workshop format. In addition, we hope to pair each student with a mentor to begin an on-going relationship. Please send a few sentences of interest to the Directing Focus Group Graduate Student Representatives: Niki Tulk: nikitulk@gmail.com and Joelle Ré Arp-Dunham: Joelle.arpdunham25@uga.edu
