We hope you already know that the upcoming IFTR Conference will be held at the Shanghai Theatre Academy from 8 to 12 July, 2019, in Shanghai, China, and that the theme of the Conference is Theatre, Performance, and Urbanism.

We, Asian Theatre Working Group, also will hold our own meeting for the paper presentations and discussions during the Shanghai Conference. As for the theme of our WG meeting, we follow the theme of the IFTR Conference: Theater, Performance, and Urbanism.

Those who wish to present papers at the Asian Theatre Working Group should submit the abstract, maximum 300 words, indicating Asian Theatre Working Group. I just quote the instruction for the abstract submission from the IFTR website.

CALL FOR PAPERS
All abstract submissions are made through the Cambridge Core website. However, in order to make a submission you will need to become a member of IFTR, first. Deadline for abstract submission: 7 January, 2019. Abstract submission via Cambridge Core. Abstract submission via Cambridge Core.
 
For the further detailed information, please look to the IFTR website.
If your proposal is accepted, your full paper should be emailed to the conveners, Yasushi Nagata and Mitsuya Mori before Thursday 20 June, 2019. The submitted papers will be circulated to all the members of our WG to be read in advance of the meeting in Shanghai. The paper preferably should be 3,000 to 3,500 words. The draft version is all right. The presenter does not need to read the paper at the meeting but presents only supplementary explanations about the paper, so that we directly go to the discussion on the paper. Each presenter will have one hour at least.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to write to us.
