If you have an article you are preparing to submit for publication and would like critical feedback from theatre scholars and journal editors, please email a proposal document as a Word attachment by NOVEMBER 15, 2013 to session coordinators Carolyn D. Roark ( and Joanne Zerdy (

  • your name
  • academic affiliation, if any
  • title (identifying whether you are faculty, a student, or an independent scholar)
