Call for papers: Association for Asian Performance (AAP) emerging scholars panel

The Association for Asian Performance (AAP) invites submissions for its 20th Annual Adjudicated Panel to be held during the Association for Asian Performance annual conference in Scottsdale, Arizona, July 23-24, 2014, 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 email their paper electronically to:

Dr. Emily Wilcox,
Assistant Professor of Chinese Studies
Department of Asian Languages and Cultures
eewilcox[at]umich[dot]edu

Deadline for Submissions: January 15, 2014

Winners will be notified by April 15, 2014

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 in 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. Wilcox.
