CALL FOR PAPERS / 12th ANNUAL BTA DEBUT PANEL
Black Theatre Association (BTA) Focus Group
Curtains Up: Conversation Among Emerging Scholars
ATHE 2013, August 1 - 4, 2013
Orlando, Florida
The Black Theatre Association (BTA), a focus group of the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE), seeks essay submissions for its 12th Annual Debut Panel.

BTA will hold a joint session with the American Theatre and Drama Society (ATDS) and the Latino/a Focus Group (LFG) in order to foster communication across our interrelated disciplines.  Each focus group—BTA, ATDS, and LFG—will select two papers to represent them on these interdisciplinary panels.

BTA encourages all graduate students and assistant professors working on black theatre and performance studies who have never presented at ATHE or a national conference to apply. Papers may consider any aspect of black dramatic criticism, theatre history, plays, playwrights, performers, directors, designers, etc.

The highest quality papers will be selected by our distinguished panel of theatre/performance studies scholar judges. The selected essays will receive specific feedback from judges to help authors strengthen their work for national conference presentation.

Please include your name, paper title, affiliation and contact information on the first page of your essay.  Essays will be evaluated on originality, the quality of writing and research, and critical/theoretical sophistication. Accepted panelists will present their papers at the 2013 ATHE conference, August 1 - 4, 2013 in Orlando, Florida.

All essay submissions should be 8 to 10 pages in length, typed, double-spaced (including block quotes), and use either Chicago or MLA style citations.

***Deadline for submissions is Friday, March 15, 2013***
Receipt of your submission will be confirmed via email, and you will be informed of the judges' decisions on or near May 1, 2012.

Please e-mail your completed essay submission as an MSWord attachment to Khalid Y. Long, BTA Debut Panel Coordinator, at longky at umd.edu<mailto:longky at umd.edu>. Please type “BTA Debut Panel” in the subject heading.
