Call for Proposals

Association for Asian Performance 22nd Annual Conference

Wednesday, July 27, 2022 | In-Person Conference

Deadline: April 8, 2022

The Association for Asian Performance (AAP) invites submissions for its 22nd annual conference. The AAP conference is a one-day event, to be held at the Detroit Marriott at the Renaissance Center in Detroit, Michigan preceding the annual Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) conference. Proposals are invited for papers, panels, workshops, roundtable discussions, and other formats. Learn more about the AAP at

Proposals for the following formats are welcome:

· Individual Papers on topics related to Asian performance. Proposals for individual papers should include an abstract (max 250 words). Individual presentations should be limited to 20 minutes so that there will be time left for questions and discussion. Visual materials (slides, video, etc.) are strongly encouraged.

· Panels composed of three paper presenters and one discussant or four paper presenters. Proposals for panels should provide a brief statement (250 words) that explains the session as a whole, a list of titles and a 50-word abstract for each paper, and biography of the discussant (if applicable).

· Roundtables offer an opportunity for participants to discuss specific themes, issues or significant recent publications. A maximum of six active participants is recommended. While a roundtable proposal need not be as detailed as a panel proposal, it should explain fully the session’s purpose, themes, or issues and scope (250 words), as well as provide a list of committed participants.

· Workshops by performance practitioner(s) with expertise in specific Asian performance traditions are welcomed, particularly workshops that overlap with a panel theme or paper presentation. Workshop proposals should include an abstract (350 words) describing the workshop and any technical or space considerations. Workshops should be designed to run no longer than 80 minutes.

· We also encourage suggestions for innovative alternatives to the session formats described above! Please contact the conference organizer directly if you have an idea for an innovative session.
