CFP: British Association for American Studies conference
CO-SPONSORED PANELS WITH THE AMERICAN THEATRE AND DRAMA SOCIETY AT THE 57th ANNUAL BRITISH ASSOCIATION FOR AMERICAN STUDIES CONFERENCE
UNIVERSITY OF MANCHESTER
12-15 APRIL 2012
DEADLINE: Friday 21 October 2011
To further develop links between scholars working in American Theatre and Drama in the UK, Europe and North America, the American Theatre and Drama Society will be co-sponsoring panels at BAAS 57. Interested scholars are invited to propose papers engaging with ANY subjects in American Theatre or Drama. Conference delegates will be able to attend a production of Leonard Bernstein, Betty Comden and Adolph Green's 1953 musical Wonderful Town which will be running at the Lowry during BAAS 57, therefore papers engaging with this musical or a related topic are particularly welcomed. Because the conference organisers this year are keen to have a number of interdisciplinary panels that cross the boundaries of literary, historical, political, cinematic, cultural and theoretical work, any abstracts not programmed on a co-sponsored panel will be considered in general conference programming. Abstracts (250 words max) and titles for 20 minute papers should be submitted by FRIDAY 21 OCTOBER 2011. Please e-mail proposals to Laura MacDonald, University of Groningen: firstname.lastname@example.org
