THIRD BIENNIAL CONFERENCE OF THE IBERIAN THEATER AND PERFORMANCE NETWORK (ITPN) - Theatrical Processes
School of Advanced Study, Senate House | University of London, 25-27 June 2020

The Third Biennial Conference of the Iberian Theater and Performance Network (ITPN) will focus on the topic of theatrical processes. We are particularly interested in approaching theater and performance as a dynamic and evolving practice of continuous change, regeneration and mobility. Both the dramatic texts and their stage versions have never been viewed as finished products. On the contrary, their richness lies in their unfinished nature and their openness to constant revision, rehearsal and revival. The objective of this conference is to create a dialogue about the creative processes implied in the various ways of working with the play text, the staging practices, the way audiences and critical reception can impact a production, and the many lives of theatre beyond the page and the stage. ITPN aims at creating a forum to exchange ideas among scholars working on different periods of specialization, therefore we encourage contributions that range from the medieval era to the twenty first century with a focus on the Iberian Peninsula.

Topics may include but are not limited to:
• dramaturgy
• translation
• adaptation
• censorship
• performance practices
• audience and critical reception
• remediation into film, television, opera, musical, comic books
• cultural and political appropriations
• artistic failures or successes and their aftermath
• applied theater in educational, outreach and therapeutic projects.

There will be two ways of presenting at the conference. We invite abstracts for ONE of the two proposed formats (in English or Spanish):
A. Abstracts for a regular 20-minute paper on any topic related to the theme of the conference (in English or Spanish).
B. Abstracts for a 10-minute paper to participate in one of the two proposed working groups:
WORKING GROUP 1: TRANSLATION AS RENEWAL
WORKING GROUP 2: THE LIMITS OF ADAPTATION

SUBMITTING PROPOSALS:
• Submit an abstract proposal not exceeding 250 words to the program committee.
• The proposal should include the paper title (even if its intended for a working group), the
speaker’s name, e-mail address, and academic affiliation.
• The deadline for submissions is 1 June 2019.
• Since space is limited and there will be no parallel sessions, all abstracts will be peer-reviewed
and notifications of accepted proposals will be confirmed by 1 July 2019.
