CFP Eastern Communication Association: Interpretation and Performance Interest Group
The deadline for receiving submissions is October 15, 2018.
The Interpretation and Performance Studies Interest Group is requesting paper, panel, and performance submissions for the 110th Annual ECA Convention in Providence, RI. The convention theme, Creating Our Future, is centered on the idea we can use performance and arts-based inquiry to better education and foster inclusive relationships among people of difference. The field of performance studies insists that creative, participant-centered, and narrative research is a way to make sense of the world, especially in this contentious political climate. We believe that performance is an avenue to imagine, play, and create futures in which we want to live. We are interested in submissions that point to ways of creating sustainable futures free from oppression and injustice.
Papers and panel/program proposals must be submitted electronically by Monday, October 15, 2018.
ECA will now be using Attendee Interactive to manage submissions and reviews. This is the same system used by the National Communication Association so you may be familiar with it. The deadline for submissions remains the same, October 15, 2018 at 11:59 PM. You will be prompted to create a new User ID and Password to submit your work. An email will be sent to the membership in the next couple of months to announce when Attendee Interactive will be open for submission. Additional information, including a link to the submission page, will be sent to ECA members on the day the submission website opens.
Audio/Visual cannot be guaranteed.
