Call for Papers
The Two Thousand + TEN symposium focuses on the theme of improvisation.
Improvisatory strategies regularly come to the foreground as new performance practices emerge.
Often used as a method for the exploration of performative territory, improvisation can define a process as well as an end result.
For the Two Thousand + TEN symposium, we welcome proposals for presentations which address improvisation across disciplines, and those proposals that link improvisatory strategies to the development of new performance scenarios (network performances, telematics, mobile games, intermedia…).
Areas of interest include, but are not limited to:
Analysis of improvisation
Improvisation and technology
Improvisation as design method
Histories of improvisation
Cultures of improvisation
The anthropology of improvisation
Improvisation as practice
Idioms, languages and styles of improvisation
