Debut Panel 2017


The Theatre History Focus Group (THFG) of the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) invites submissions for its debut panel from scholars who have neither published articles nor previously presented at ATHE. The deadline for submission is Monday, March 16.

Papers must address the history of theatre practice, but the parameters are broad. Active engagement with historiographical methodologies, theory, and/or dramatic literature is encouraged. Papers may engage explicitly the conference theme “Spectacle: balancing education, theory, and praxis #ATHE2017OfBreadAndCircuses” but are not required to do so. We encourage papers incorporating transnational or non-Western perspectives.

Submissions will be evaluated by a jury of three theatre scholars. The top three papers will be presented at the national conference in Las Vegas. Papers should be standard conference length for a 20 minute presentation (8-10 pages). Those selected should plan to attend the conference in Las Vegas, NV the weekend August 3-6, 2017. More information on the conference may be found at

Please send your paper as a .pdf email attachment to THFG Associate Conference Planner Megan Geigner at with “THFG Debut Panel Submission” in the subject line. Please do NOT put your name on the paper. However, in the body of your email message, please indicate: the title of your paper, your name, institution, address, telephone number, and email address.

Winners will be notified by May 1.

Panelists may receive a small honorarium to help defray the cost of conference attendance.
