Conference Poster Session CFP

Association for Asian Performance

13th Annual Conference
July 31-August 1, 2013  Orlando, FL

The AAP conference is a two-day event, to be held at the Hyatt Regency Grad Cypress in Orland, FL, preceding and during the annual ATHE (Association for Theatre in Higher Education) conference.

AAP invites submissions for the poster session portion of the AAP conference.

The poster session is a new feature of the AAP conference that had great success during 2011 and 2012.  This unique session allows both junior and senior scholars to share research in a more informal atmosphere that fosters conversation.  It is an especially excellent format for young scholars (students), as well as for established scholars trying a new direction in their research.  When possible, AAP will pair each presenter with a specialist who is able to act as a respondent.

Proposals should include the following:

  1. Title
  2. Name and a short bio of the presenter(s)
  3. Affiliation, specialization (field/region), mailing address, phone numbers and e-mail address for the presenter.
  4. A short abstract (100-200 words) describing the topic of the research.
  5. Include additional details about the visual design (such as a tri-fold standing poster or video) of your presentation and information about any special requirements.  Please keep in mind that AAP has very limited AV resources.

Proposals should be emailed to the organizer for the poster session, Jennifer Goodlander at:  JennGoodlander@yahoo.com

Feel free to contact Jennifer with any questions as well.

THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION OF ALL PROPOSALS IS MAY 25, 2013.

All presenters are expected to join AAP. Membership is $40 per year ($25 for students) and includes a subscription to the Asian Theatre Journal (http://www.uhpress.hawaii.edu/journals/atj/).
