 This year`s conference theme≈Je me souviens (I Remember/Lest We Forget)≈is particularly provocative for music theatre and dance scholars as memory (its construction, re-construction, preservation, and circulation) often plays a central role in our work as historians, theorists, actors, directors, and choreographers.

 

Possible avenues of investigation include:

╥      The materials that we use to remember past musical theatre and dance performances.

╥      The role that nostalgia plays in our memory of musical theatre and dance performances.

╥      The role that memory plays in the production or reception of revivals or adaptations.

╥      The role that memory plays in the re-creation of musical theatre and dance repertoire.

╥      The ways in which memory organizes and sustains fan communities

 

The 2015 conference theme also acknowledges Canada`s histories of colonialism and nationalism. The theme and conference location also invites us to consider questions of transnationalism, globalization, and musical theatre/dance performance created outside of the United States.

 

In addition to the traditional format of panels and papers, MT/D welcomes proposals for practice-based workshops or interactive, site specific, and alternative-format presentations. Presenters submitting proposals outside of the traditional panel format are asked to specify the structure and number ofparticipants so that ATHE can be advised about space/time needs.
