Call for Participation: "Politics and Community Engagement in Doctoral Theatre Research" Conference, 3–4 November 2017, Theatre Faculty of JAMU, Czech Republic.Closing date is 31 May, 2017.
The increasing political tension around the globe in many respects poses a challenge to current theatre practice as well as to its scholarly reflection. The intensity of theatre’s political engagement has grown on many levels and has been mediated through different genres, often referred to as “political theatre“, “documentary theatre”, “radical theatre” or “applied theatre”. At the conference, theatre’s political, i.e. participatory, mobilizing and potentially transformative aspects will be discussed by theatre makers and researchers who are currently working on their Ph.D. See the Call for Proposals here: http://www.theatrephdjamu.cz/en/call-for-proposals Deadline for submission is 31 May 2017. The Conference of Doctoral Studies in Theatre Practice and Theory has been organised as a biennial event by the Theatre Faculty of Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts Brno, Czech Republic, since 2003. The event has been attended by over one hundred doctoral students from Europe, Africa, North America and Asia.
