ATHE 2015 CFP: Feminist Pedagogies 0 J. Del Vecchio Fantasy Feminisms: Remembering and Reimagining Feminist PedagogiesIn response to ATHE 2015’s conference theme, Je me souviens (“I remember”), this roundtable seeks to foster a community that reflects on their experiences of teaching theatre and performance with feminist intentions. We invite participants to remember a course or particular moment in a course---an assignment, a lesson plan, a discussion of a text or performance, for instance---that stands out as a success or a failure of feminist pedagogy. What did you do, what were your intentions, and what would you do differently in retrospect? We encourage participants to collect digital “souvenirs” to share---assignment sheets or (with students’ permission) examples of student writing, videos, images of projects, etc.---to enrich our conversation and to create an archive of feminist teaching practices. We seek participants eager to discuss such questions as:How do pedagogies that explicitly engage race, sexual and gender identity, ethnicity, and class, for example, intersect with feminisms in the classroom? How do feminist pedagogies work in practice-based classrooms? (This could address acting, directing, or design classes.) In what ways can digital connectivity be harnessed for sustained engagement and meaningful student learning in the classroom? This session builds on the ATHE 2014 Women and Theatre roundtable “Fantasy Feminisms: Dreaming of the Perfect Syllabus” in which five participants shared syllabi and assignment strategies on the blog This year, we will ask participants to post a 200-400 word reflection on the blog one month prior to the conference. At the conference, participants will share their memories and souvenirs with each other and the audience. The remainder of the session will be dedicated to a roundtable discussion of feminist classroom practices, allowing ample time for audience observations and contributions.If interested, please submit an abstract that includes the title of your course and a 1-3 sentence description of the memory you would like to present to and by Monday, October 27th.

Test response to Gloria's query 5 I. Mayorga Thanks for the feedback Trevor - yes, please play and explore and offer feedback. I encourage it as this is all new format. I am also getting the sense that the blogs as posts and response areas may be more amenable to the conversation process of forming panels. This has yet to prove itself, it's just a sense right now. Thanks!

Archives Panel at ATHE 0 T. Boffone  Is anyone interesting in collaborating on an ATHE panel about archives, memory, and creating archives/memories for future generations? What will we choose to archive? What legacy will we leave for the next generation? How can we rethink archives and archiving methods?About my project - I am working on Teatro in East Los Angeles and Josefina Lopez's work there mentoring and using theater as a way to revitalize the barrio. For this panel, I was thinking of exploring about playwrights having designated scholars to be the "formal keeper" of their archives, especially the matter of doing archival research in the 21st century, including digital culture. And I would like to talk about the importance of archiving what is happening now so we can create memory for the future.Let me know if you're interested.
