The 2018 Tri-University Colloquium for Theatre and Performance Research begins its second full cycle with the 4th annual event.
Building from the themes and connections of the first cycle, the 2018 Colloquium title considers the range of intersections and interventions that fall under the banner of theatre and performance. Acknowledging the Applied Theatre program at UVic within this banner, this year’s colloquium also looks to the ways applied theatre can intersect and inform theory and practice while intervening in the areas of community development, social justice and education through performative projects.
This year’s colloquium will take place at The University of Victoria April 27 & 28, 2018
The Tri-University Colloquium
The Tri-University Graduate Student Colloquium was formed in 2014 to offer vital professional development opportunities to graduate student scholars at UBC, UVIC and SFU working in the areas of theatre and performance studies. The initiative is entirely student-led, and its annual colloquium event in April/May rotates between the three universities. Its goals are to create scholarly conversation and build community, to offer skill-building opportunities in conference organization and presentation, and to generate structures that promote useful feedback and growth for graduate students.
