>Women and Theatre Call For Papers: Unexpected Encounters
>
>
>  The Women and Theatre Program is seeking proposals for panels and
>  presentations at the 2004 ATHE Conference in Toronto, Canada July
>  29-August 1.  This year, Women and Theatre plans to continue exploring the
>  theme of its pre-conference--Unexpected Encounters--throughout the ATHE
>  conference.  As a result, we invite session proposals that focus on
>  foregrounding and working through the often hidden critical
>  connections and connective conflicts among feminist dramas, theatres,
>  performances, and social movements of different cultures, locations, and
>  histories in a putatively "globalized world."
>
>  We also plan to include sessions that are not specifically related to the
>  pre-conference theme but are aligned with the ATHE theme and issues of
>  "women and theatre," broadly defined.  The description for the conference
>  reads: "In a world increasingly shaped by international forces and tensions,
>  how can theatre inspire students and educators to a new understanding of
>  global identity.  In the beautiful cosmopolitan city of Toronto, explore
>  the diverse resources that ATHE's theatre artists, scholars and teachers
>  provide from their unique perspectives.  The Toronto Conference Committee
>  invites session proposals that place distinctive local approaches to
>  theatre and education-from your home town or from the other side of
>the globe-into
>  dialogue with each other."
>
>  The Toronto Conference Committee encourages panel proposals that
>  incorporate "innovative formats, numerous voices, and active dialogue."  In
>  other words, you are strongly encouraged to utilize panel
>configurations that go
>  beyond the traditional 3-speaker panel presentation: consider alternative
>  options such as seminars, roundtables, performances, workshops, and poster
>  sessions.
>
>  ATHE will not accept proposals that indicate the presenters are still to
>  be determined.  All persons whose names appear on proposals must have
>  agreed to attend the ATHE conference.  In addition, priority will be given
>  to panels that include representatives from various institutions (rather than
>  all from the same university, for example).  Potential presenters should not
>  apply to be on more than one WTP panel.
>
>  Individual paper proposals will be seriously considered, but preference
>  is given to complete panels.  In the past, individuals have successfully
>  assembled complete panels through networking on the ATHE listserv.  See
>  "Resources" on the ATHE webpage (www.hawaii.edu/athe) for information on
>  subscribing to the ATHECALL listserv.  If you are having difficulty
>  assembling a complete panel, please contact Lisa Bernd as soon as
>  possible.
>
>  Because paper proposal forms are being phased out as of this year, WTP
>  strongly encourages you to submit proposals electronically through
>  ATHE's website (see address above).  Electronic submission ensures that your
>  proposal arrives promptly and goes through the proper channels.
>
>  The proposals must be received by Saturday, November 1.  Late proposals
>  will not be accepted; however, if your materials are incomplete, contact
>  Lisa Bernd.  Please follow the guidelines listed on the proposal form
>  carefully.
>
>  Contact information
>  Send proposals, questions, and concerns to Lisa Bernd, School of Drama,
>  University of Oklahoma, Norman, OK 73019.  Phone: 405-325-5303; Fax:
