2023 American Society for Theatre Research Conference
November 9–12, 2023, Providence, RI
We’re gearing up to celebrate all of the fabulous scholars and practitioners attending the 2023 American Society for Theatre Research conference in Providence, Rhode Island! We’re joining you virtually this year and are really looking forward to the conversations.
For theatre studies and performance studies resources, check out our virtual conference hub, which has a podcast playlist featuring your favorite theatre folks, book lists and recommendations, conference presentations by Ideas on Fire authors, and more.
This year’s conference theme is Hope, and there is a wonderful lineup of working sessions, plenaries, and presentations exploring hope as a critical methodology, inspiration, lens, and tool for theatre and performance studies.
Got an interdisciplinary book you want some editing or indexing help with? You can schedule a free Zoom consultation with IoF founder Cathy Hannabach to learn how our team of editors, indexers, researchers, and publishing consultants can help get your book out into the world.
The interdisciplinary work of theatre and performance studies continually inspires us, and we love celebrating our #IoFAuthors in these fields. Check out these conference presentations and working sessions by IoF authors:
- Jennifer A. Kokai and Tom Robson, Finding Hope at the Hoop-Dee-Doo
- Christopher Grobe, The Performance of Politics: Hopes for the Future (working session)
