MATC is pleased to offer a pair of workshops at the 2015 conference for scholars and practitioners working on articles in the areas of Theatre History, Performance, Pedagogy, Theory, and/or Practice. The workshops will offer participants the opportunity to meet in a closed session with journal editors who have read their work in advance and who will offer suggestions for improvement as well as strategies for submitting to academic journals.
Recent Articles-in-Progress sessions have included editors from:
Journal of Dramatic Theory and Criticism
Journal of Religion and Theatre
New England Theatre Journal
Theatre History Studies
If you have an article you are preparing to submit for publication and would like critical feedback from journal editors, please email a proposal document (not the full article) as a Word attachment by NOVEMBER 15, 2014 to session coordinators Robert B. Shimko (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Jocelyn L. Buckner (email@example.com).
All proposals must include:
- your name
- your academic affiliation, if any
- your title (identifying whether you are faculty, a student, or an independent scholar—all are invited to submit)
- your contact information
- a 500-word abstract of the essay
- a one-page works cited list
Session coordinators will select essays for two workshops—one for graduate students and one for faculty and independent scholars—based on the overall clarity of the project and the time limitations of the conference itself. Authors initially selected must submit full versions of their essays by January 31, 2015 and register for the conference to participate in the session. For more information, visit: http://matc.us/.
