We are soliciting papers that will represent the full range of experience IFTR/FIRT members have with Digital Humanities in Theatre and Performance Research. We are seeking papers and project presentations that
• explore the theoretical implications of Digital Humanities for our research into theatre and performance
• describe existing cyber projects in theatre and performance research
• propose needed digital projects in these fields
• explicate problems relating to the pedagogy and technology of such projects (and perhaps propose solutions to them)
• focus on digital theatre history and historiography
Papers and case studies examining how digital humanities projects can be used in teaching are welcome, but we are not looking for contributions that are only concerned with techniques for using technology in the classroom or distance learning courses at this time. Working groups are not required to address the theme of an IFTR conference but papers which enter into conversation with the theme are most welcome.
Abstracts (up to 300 words) on either a proposed paper or the presentation of a data project will be accepted in English or in the language of the host country but please remember that the group’s primary working language is English.
Abstracts are due by 15 January 2016, and notice of acceptance will be given in early March.
