Traditionally, the State of the Profession panel has provided a place within the ASTR annual conference where larger questions can be asked about our discipline, its organizations and institutions. This year, we raised some central questions arising from the conference theme to leading figures in five key areas. We want to share these questions with you ahead of the conference so you can think about them in advance and join in what we hope will be a dynamic conference-wide discussion on the occasion of the State of the Profession panel. To see the questions, click here.

Digital Research and Scholarship (DRS) serves as a resource for ASTR members interested in the application of digital technologies to the study of theatre and performance. Resources are designed to serve both those scholars active in the field of digital humanities as well as those new to digital methodologies or who may be curious to know what it may afford their own research, scholarship, and teaching. The DRS includes updated resources in digital tools and methods, discussions, and opportunity to showcase current projects by ASTR members.
