Call for Emerging Ideas Roundtable at Children, Youth, and Performance Conference
This is a call for graduate students, new scholars, performers, and practitioners to participate in a unique “Emerging Ideas Roundtable” in June 2018! The deadline to apply is February 20, 2018.
Are you interested in performance work with/by/for/about children and youth?
Are you involved in a project relevant to children, youth, and performance?
Do you have unique ideas you want to share or discuss? Do you need conference experience for your CV?
We invite your participation in a special “Emerging Ideas Roundtable.”
The Roundtable will be held at the Children, Youth, and Performance Conference, at the Young People’s Theatre in Toronto on June 24, 2018. This international conference brings researchers, practitioners, educators and performers together to discuss new research and practices relevant to children, youth, performance, and the performing arts. All participants will have the opportunity to attend workshops, panels, presentations, and original performance pieces. We have already received workshop proposals from seasoned researchers and practitioners in the field, but will use this roundtable to open the conference up to emerging work, and new scholars who may have work-in-progress or budding ideas.
The “Emerging Ideas Roundtable” is a component of the conference geared to those who are in conceptual or early stages of research, in the process of creating an artistic project, and/or developing new pedagogical methods they would like to discuss. It’s a great space to work through ideas and network. Participants of this Roundtable will be listed in the program, and can include it as a conference presentation on their academic CVs or résumés. Participants may present in more than one panel/presentation at the conference.
Registration for the entire conference is discounted to $40 CAD for students, while regular admission is $70.
To apply to participate in the Roundtable, please submit your full name, and a short bio (50-100 words) to firstname.lastname@example.org by February 20, with the email subject “Emerging Ideas Roundtable.” Confirmations of acceptance will be sent before the end of March.
