To All,

Bill is so right. This was a great introduction to leadership. It allayed my sheer panic when I began the Director job. If you are at all interested, I encourage you to consider. (I won’t last forever!) When I did it, the College paid for the costs. I think we could arrange something again this year.

Dear Friends,

Michael participated in this, and I mentored for several years. It is led by OU alumna Barbara “Bobbi” Korner, dean of arts and architecture at Penn State. If you are at all considering a leadership role in your career, or wondering if you should, or would like to understand issues of leadership better, I urge you to consider this seriously. And I would argue that we mere faculty members can, and should be, leaders, even if we don’t have administrative titles.

Announcing the 2016 ATHE Leadership Institute®

The ATHE Leadership Institute®<http://www.athe.org/link.asp?e=condee@ohio.edu&job=2357403&ymlink=4816083&finalurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww%2Eathe%2Eorg%2Fpage%2FLI%5FAbout> provides professional development opportunities for faculty members to prepare for leadership roles in higher education and serve more effectively. Since 2000, more than 200 faculty members have participated in the workshops and mentoring. Presenters include national leaders in higher education as well as experienced chairs, deans, and other executives who volunteer their time and expertise to mentor faculty. The program will also feature career development coaching with a representative from a leading higher education search firm and a keynote address by Dr. Kwang-Wu Kim, president of Columbia College Chicago. Each participant will also be matched with a mentor who is an established leader/administrator in the field. Mentors and participants will meet with one another during the ATHE conference and arrange to talk periodically during the year following the workshop. These opportunities can be invaluable for professional development and support – and they are integral to the Leadership Institute’s mission.

Every 28 Hours

Dear Colleagues,

[Joan Lipkin]I am writing to you in my new capacity as the chair of Campus Outreach, for “Every 28 Hours” to invite you to participate in staging this project in some capacity on your campus in 2016 as part of a national rollout. If you are interested, please write to me at thatuppitytheatrecompany at gmail.com<mailto:thatuppitytheatrecompany at gmail.com> with the subject header “Every 28 Hours: (the name of your school).

The Every 28 Hours Plays consist of around 80 one-minute plays inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement, with participation from artists across the country including David Henry Wang, Neil LaBute, Stew, Universes, Kristoffer Diaz, Jacqueline Lawton, Migdalia Cruz, Lisa Loomer, and Lynn Nottage among others.

Produced by the Oregon Shakespeare Festival under the leadership of Claudia Alick (OSF’s Associate Producer, Community) and The One-Minute Play Festival with Dominic D’Andrea (Producing Artistic Director,) in association with local St. Louis theatre companies, and writers and directors across the country, we have developed The Every 28 Hours Plays, in a national partnership focused on the widely shared and contested statistic that every twenty-eight hours a black person is killed by vigilante, security guard, or the police in the United States.

Call for Papers
ATHE Theory & Criticism Graduate Student Essay Contest

This award will foster that student’s work by introducing the writer of the winning essay to the many excellent resources provided by the ATHE conference.

With this in mind, the T&C Focus Group has assembled a reward that lifts financial burdens and offers beneficial feedback on the student’s work from multiple sources. The prizes listed below are intended to bolster the work of the student by supplying them with individual attention of a senior scholar and by providing them with books and journals connected to their particular interests.

The winning scholar will receive:

  *   ATHE 2016 conference fee
  *   The opportunity to participate in a Theory and Criticism-sponsored roundtable
  *   A one-year’s subscription to the Routledge journal of your choice
  *   A Routledge book of your choice
  *   A mentoring session with a senior scholar at ATHE 2016

Submissions due: Saturday, April 16, 2016

Submissions can address any aspect of theory or criticism relating to performance, theatre, or dramatic literature. Essays should be unpublished and either conference or article length (no more than 8000 words).

Papers will be judged on originality of research and argument, sophistication of engagement with theory and criticism, and quality of writing. The judging panel is comprised of Theory & Criticism focus group officers. A winner will be announced on May 7, 2016.

Guy Bergquist Wins 2016 Wally Russell Mentor Award

[Guy Bergquist]Arena Stage’s Guy Bergquist received USITT’s 2016 Wally Russell Professional Mentor Award Friday at USITT 2016 in Salt Lake City.

Bergquist retired from the Washington, D.C. theatre company in 2011 after 25 years. He is the second person to receive the award created in memory of Russell, a beloved figure in lighting and theatre technology who helped many people get their start in the industry.

Wally Russell Foundation Board Members Paul Vincent and Tom Folsom presented Bergquist with the award, which he accepted with an emotional speech that touched on his love for collaboration that honors the work onstage.

"When I heard I would receive this award, I kept wondering, 'Why me?'" he said. "And after 374 versions of this speech, it came to me: Respect. Respect for the art of storytelling, respect for the artists and the audience, and respect for our process of collaboration and for each other."
