The Conference

The Comparative Drama Conference is an international, interdisciplinary conference founded by Dr. Karelisa Hartigan at the University of Florida in 1977.  Every year, approximately 150 scholars are invited to present and discuss their work in the field of drama.  The conference draws participants from both the Humanities and the Arts.  The papers delivered range over the entire field of theatre research and production.  Over the past 31 years the participants have come from 31 nations and all 50 states.  Papers selected for presentation are assigned to a conference panel that includes other papers with related themes.  Sessions are established to cover all the papers selected.  Each year a distinguished theatre scholar or artist whose recent work is relevant to the conference is invited to address the participants in a plenary session.  The keynote speaker for 2009 will be Professor Lizbeth Goodman, Chair of Creative Technology Innovation at the University of East London, and Found/Director of the SMARTlab Digital Media Institute:  a noted scholar of gender, performance and technology.
