17-21 June 2009, Amsterdam, Netherlands. Application deadline: 8 February 2009
A meeting is organised by the Holland Festival, the International Association of Theatre Critics (IATC/AICT). Topic: the effects of globalization and migration on theatre criticism.
The colloquium, which will consist of 6 sessions on June 18 and 19 with an introduction by a key note speaker, will provide a forum for discussion of questions related to these developments, both in the abstract and in relation to particular national, regional or urban situations. As an example we mention:
Interested colleagues are invited to send the title and an abstract (up to 500 words) of the proposed paper (in English or French) by email to IATC@hollandfestival.nl by 8 February 2009. Notification of acceptance for a presentation will be sent by 20 February 2009. The complete text of your paper (3500 words maximum) should be sent by 20 April 2009. Participants will be expected to speak briefly about their paper (max 20 minutes), not to read it out in its entirety. Abstracts will be made available in advance on the IATC website.
As in the case of previous symposia, the papers will be published in English and French by the organisation at a later date.
The Holland Festival will fund the cost of accommodation, theatre tickets and other activities, including lunches and a festive dinner on the final evening, as well as transportation to and from point of arrival (airport or train station) to hotels. The arrival is on June 17, departure on June 21.
