Call for Papers: Student Symposium: Costume, Scenography and Critical Theory, May 23/24, 2019. Deadline for submissions: Friday March 1, 2019
BA Costume with Performance Design at AUB would like to invite colleagues to submit proposals for one-hour lecture presentations linking Costume, Scenography and Critical Theory.
We are seeking a range of academic and professional speakers with backgrounds in theatre, performance and film, who are interested in presenting to our second year BA students at a two day Symposium on May 23/24, 2019.
We would also like to invite applications from PhD candidates.
Now in its sixth year, the Symposium offers students a range of practical, historical, political and theoretical perspectives with regard to their Costume and Scenography practice and inspires and prepares them for their research-based dissertation writing.
We are seeking proposals and abstracts from colleagues who would be interested in speaking to our students about the important relationship between critical theory and practice.
Proposals are sought for presentations that make strong, practice-led links between critical theory approaches and Scenography, Costume Design and Costume Interpretation, with a particular focus on issues of:
Gender and Sexual Identity.
Race, Ethnicity and Interculturalism.
Spaces of Performance – Site Specifics, Indoor and Outdoor performance. Ideology and the Politics of Performance.
The Performing Body.
Audience and Spectatorship.
Ritual, Carnival and Play.
We have a small budget available to cover travel and accommodation costs for speakers.
Please send abstracts to:
Dr Jon Croose
