Deadline: Friday 9 April 2021
The Performance and Science working group invites proposals on the theme of performance and ‘working scientifically’. In the National Curriculum for England ‘Working scientifically’ is described as follows: ‘observing over time; pattern seeking; identifying, classifying and grouping; comparative and fair testing (controlled investigations); and researching using secondary sources.’ National curriculum in England: science programmes of study – GOV.UK (www.gov.uk) We would like proposals that explore how these approaches might be seen within performance scholarship and/or practice. This might include:
Proposals must be submitted to firstname.lastname@example.org by 23.59 on 9th April 2021.
Please email all abstracts (no more than 300 words in length), an additional few sentences of biographical information and precise details of the audio-visual technology you will need to make your presentation.
Please include an optional 2nd choice of Working Group (this can also include the TaPRA Gallery, where appropriate). If we are unable to accept your proposal, we will then pass it on to your 2nd choice for consideration. Your proposal will not be less likely to be accepted by our Working Group if you indicate a 2nd choice.
Please note: You may only submit a proposal to one working group (or else the PaR Gallery) for this conference, proposals submitted after the deadline will not be considered.
We will inform you whether or not your proposal has been accepted as quickly as possible, and will offer brief summary feedback to all proposals that could not be accommodated. If we have passed your proposal on to your 2nd choice of Working Group, we will let you know this as well. Please note that putting together a full draft schedule for the conference is a complex process, and therefore your patience while this process is ongoing, and prompt responses to acceptances are much appreciated. Convenors will have completed their draft schedules by 17th May 2021.
