PARTITION/ENSEMBLE: joint conference of CATR and SQET 2020

25-28 May 2020, in Montreal, QC (Université du Québec à Montréal and Concordia University)

The Canadian Association for Theatre Research holds a conference each year that brings together theatre scholars, educators, professionals, and students from around the world. This year’s conference – “Partition/Ensemble” – is a joint effort of CATR and the Société québécoise d’études théâtrales (SQET).

If you have questions about the 2020 conference, please email partitionensemble@gmail.com.

The conference will feature papers, workshops and performances on a wide range of theatre and performance studies topics, relating to both Canadian and international performance. These presentations are instrumental to defining our field and represent the most innovative research, methods, and theories emerging in performance-related disciplines. Our conference is an important site for building scholarly and creative community, and works to promote an environment where members can engage in vibrant discussion, develop professional alliances, make and renew friendships.
