Rocky Mountain Modern Language Association 74th Annual Convention

Conference Date: October 7-10, 2020

Location: Millennium Harvest House Hotel, Boulder, Colorado, USA


We invite submissions of papers pertaining to Asian drama and performance, past and present. Studies on any topics related to dramatic texts and performance traditions in Asian contexts are welcome. We especially welcome papers that explore boundaries of dramatic and performance conventions, investigate key terminologies for new ways of conceptualization (e.g. drama, theater, performance), or foster engagements with humanities disciplines such as media studies, material culture, art history, book culture, diaspora, multilingualism, gender studies, religion, and anthropology. 


Please submit your abstract to Xiaoqiao Ling (Xiaoqiao.Ling@asu.edu) and Melody Yunzi Li (mli40@central.uh.edu) by April 25th, 2020. The language of the session is English and Chinese.


Deadline for submission of abstracts: April 25th, 2020
