Over the last few years a group of scholars has been working toward establishing a stronger community among those working on German theater and performance in research and teaching. At the most recent GSA conference, many of us enjoyed a stimulating roundtable discussion about the role of theater and performance studies at the GSA and in German studies more broadly.
As part of that community-building project, we have developed a website for German-language theater & performance research (http://gtpresearch.org) to serve as a platform for communicating and sharing resources. Soon we will be using our member directory to begin convening a series of performance-focused panels for the 2017 GSA, so if you are interested in being involved, visit http://gtpresearch.org/people/join/ and submit your membership information to join our e-mail list.
If you have any questions about the website, future conference plans, or the GTPR community, feel free to contact us: email@example.com
