Roundtable: Approaches to Religion and Theatre Pedagogy

The Religion and Theatre Focus Group of the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) is organizing a roundtable as part of its 2008 pre-conference. The pre-conference is scheduled for Wednesday, July 30 and the morning of Thursday, July 31, and will take place in Denver, Colorado.

We are seeking panelists who can speak about their experiences teaching courses on religion and theatre topics, or about how their work on religious and/or spiritual performance has influenced their pedagogy. Ideally, the panelists will reflect a range of interests and specialties within Theatre and Performance Studies so that a diversity of experiences and approaches are represented. We encourage practitioners, as well as scholars, to participate. We hope that this roundtable will serve as a space for interdisciplinary collaboration and provide an opportunity for productive discussion amongst panelists and attendees.

If you are interested in participating as a formal panelist, please email a brief description of your relevant experiences, along with your name, contact information, and affiliation to Jill Stevenson at jstevenson@mmm.edu no later than June 10th. Feel free to email Jill with questions about the roundtable as well.
