Theatre Conference Call for Papers

The Theatre History Symposium of the Mid-America Theatre Conference seeks conference-length papers that examine constructions and contestations of difference in the history of theatre and performance. To “query” implies both an expression of doubt as well as a question—that is, an opening for critical dialogue that generates new knowledge as often as it responds to received knowledges. We therefore invite proposals that move beyond the repetition of received categories of difference in theatre history and instead probe the boundaries and intersections of seemingly disparate identity formations. We also encourage papers that incorporate discursive modes that challenge traditional notions of the archive and the text, to give voice to the lived pasts of historically disenfranchised groups and individuals whose pasts have often gone unrecorded in academic spaces. Please note that while “difference” may immediately conjure issues of race, ethnicity, gender, and/or sexuality, we will welcome proposals that examine differences more broadly construed: nationalisms, economic gradations, and so forth.
