Philadelphia Theatre Research Symposium

Conference Theme:
Revealing Histories: Rewriting the Past in the Plays of Sarah Ruhl
April 29, 2015

Keynote Speaker
Sarah Ruhl
Playwright

Papers:
The Philadelphia Theatre Research Symposium is seeking abstracts for papers for our 9th annual gathering of theatre scholars. This year's PTRS seeks to highlight the work of new scholars while exploring how playwrights reveal the otherwise hidden histories that are often not included in dominant historical chronicles. This symposium offers the opportunity to present work in progress and to share ideas with other researchers. We are seeking papers which engage a broad range of topics in theatre and drama studies including but not limited to the work of Sarah Ruhl, historical revisionism, gender and history, race and history, and mythology and contemporary playwriting. Participants’ papers will be eligible for publication in Praxis: The Journal for Theatre, Performance Studies and Criticism.

Abstracts of 250 words or less should be submitted along with a brief bio to PTRS@villanova.edu.

Performances:
This year PTRS also seeks submissions for performances in the areas of the work of Sarah Ruhl, feminist historical revisionism, gender and history, race and history, and mythology and contemporary playwriting. Submissions for ensemble performance projects are limited to one hour. Submissions should include a description and a video, or a video link for the performance. Artists will be responsible for their own tech.

Video materials should be submitted to PTRS@villanova.edu.

Praxis: The Journal for Theatre, Performance Studies and Criticism will provide a publishing opportunity for some of the papers presented. This journal will include established scholars but seeks to create publishing opportunities for new scholars and interesting practitioners in the area of theatre and drama.

The deadline for submission is March 1, 2015.
