Call For Papers: AAP Adjudicated Emerging Scholars Panel


The Association for Asian Performance (AAP) invites submissions for its
18th Annual Adjudicated Panel to be held during the Association for Asian
Performance annual conference in Washington, D.C., August 1-2, 2012, which
precedes the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) conference.

Anyone (current and recent graduate students, scholars, teachers, artists)
early in their scholarly career or who has not presented a paper at an AAP
conference before is welcome to submit work for consideration. To qualify
one need not necessarily be affiliated with an institution of higher
learning, although this is expected. Papers (8-10 double-spaced pages) may
deal with any aspect of Asian performance or drama. Preparation of the
manuscript in Asian Theatre Journal style, which can be gleaned from a
recent issue, is desirable. Up to three winning authors may be selected
and invited to present their papers at the upcoming AAP conference.
Paper and project presentations should be no longer than twenty minutes. A
$100 cash prize will be awarded for each paper selected, to help offset
conference fees. AAP Conference registration fees are waived for the
winners, who also receive one year free membership to AAP.

The Emerging Scholars Panel Adjudication Committee is chaired by Dr. Kathy
Foley, Editor of Asian Theatre Journal. Selected papers will be strongly
considered for publication in ATJ, which is an official publication of AAP
and the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE). Those
interested in submitting work for review should mail four (4) copies of
their paper to:

Kathy Foley, Professor, Theatre Arts
1156 High Street
Theater Arts Center, UCSC
Santa Cruz, CA 95064
and by e-mail attachment to:

Deadline for Submissions: February 15, 2012
Winners will be notified by April 15, 2012

A separate cover sheet detailing the author’s contact information-address,
phone number, and email address (for both academic year and summer
holiday) must accompany each submission. The author’s name should not
appear on the text proper.

AAP is proud to sponsor this adjudicated panel. Not only is it a chance
for students and emerging scholars to get exposure and recognition for
their work, but it also provides an opportunity to meet and make contacts
with others who are interested in similar fields of research.

Please direct any inquiries regarding the emerging scholars panel to Dr.
