A presentation and potential publication opportunity for early career Asian performance scholars from the largest Asian performance professional organization in North America.
The Association for Asian Performance (AAP) invites submissions for its 26th Annual Adjudicated Panel to be held during the Association for Asian Performance annual conference on August 3-4, 2021, which precedes the Association for Theatre in Higher Education (ATHE) conference. Selected papers will be strongly considered for publication in Asian Theatre Journal – an official publication of AAP. Eligibility is open to all (current and recent graduate students, scholars, teachers, artists) provided they are: 1) early in their scholarly career OR new to the study of Asian performance; 2) have not published in Asian Theatre Journal; and 3) have not previously received an AAP Emerging Scholars Award. We welcome submissions from past applicants. 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 will be selected and invited to present their papers at the upcoming AAP conference. Paper 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. Receipt of award is contingent upon attendance at the AAP conference. All paper submissions will receive written feedback from the selection committee.
Please follow this link, fill out the form, and upload your papers as a .doc/.docx file. The author’s name should not appear in the paper. Please address any questions to Arnab Banerji, Assistant Professor of Theatre, Loyola Marymount University (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Deadline for Submissions: February 15, 2021. Winners will be notified by May 15, 2021
