The 2014 Mellon School of Theater and Performance Research at Harvard University

The Mellon School of Theater and Performance Research at Harvard University is pleased to announce that we are now accepting applications for our fourth annual summer session, to be held June 2 - 13, 2014. The School offers faculty and advanced graduate students the opportunity to learn from leading scholars in theater and performance research in an intensive two-week summer program.

The topic for the 2014 session will be "Locations of Theater." The word "theater" designates a "place of seeing," and the question of where theater should take place has been a fundamental one throughout the history of this art form. Our investigations will address the architecture and archaeologies of theater, from the invention of the raised stage to the rebellion against special-purpose theater spaces with site-specific performance, and the many evolutions of theatrical location and dislocation in between.

Participants will work with an international faculty of distinguished scholars in theater studies and related fields. This year's faculty includes:
 
Sarah Bay-Cheng, SUNY-Buffalo
Matthew Buckley, Rutgers University
Debra Caplan, Baruch College
Elinor Fuchs, Yale University
Ariane Lourie Harrison, Yale University
Seth Harrison, Harrison Atelier
Ju Yon Kim, Harvard University
David Levine, ECLA of Bard (Germany)
Derek Miller, Harvard University
Mike Pearson, Aberystwyth University
Carrie Preston, Boston University
Martin Puchner, Harvard University
Heike Roms, Aberystwyth University
Andrew Sofer, Boston College
 
Participants take one of two daily seminars on overarching theoretical and methodological topics related to the theme of "Locations of Theater." In addition to the morning seminars, the program includes discussions, research workshops, performances, and evening lectures taught by visiting faculty members. Graduate student participants take part in a writing workshop devoted to their dissertation research; junior faculty participate in a workshop focused on turning their dissertations into books.
 
Due to a generous grant from the Mellon Foundation, tuition will be free for all accepted participants. 
 
Applications are due March 1, 2014. A complete application consists of our application form, a curriculum vitae, graduate transcripts (for current doctoral students only), a statement of interest, and a research statement. Admissions decisions will be announced in early April.
 
For more information and application instructions, please visit our website at thschool.fas.harvard.edu or email thschool@fas.harvard.edu.
 
Please forward this announcement widely to interested colleagues.
 
Martin Puchner, Director
