EXPERIENCE AS A RESEARCH METHOD IN PERFORMING ARTS

Theatre Faculty of Janácek Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno is pleased to invite you to the 9th Conference of Doctoral Studies in Theatre Practice and Theory!

This year´s topic is EXPERIENCE AS A RESEARCH METHOD IN PERFORMING ARTS. The conference will be held on 22-23 November 2019 in Brno, Czech Republic. 

The conference provides a platform on which different concepts of doctoral studies and research in the field of theatre practice and theory can be contrasted. The event has been attended by over one hundred doctoral students from Europe, Africa, North as well as South America and Asia who have come here to introduce their research in progress to an international audience and discuss common methodological issues. Not only Ph.D. students but also their supervisors and other teachers from their institutions are welcome to take part in the conference as observers.

This year we would like to examine the issue well-known to all students and young researchers in theatre and other art practice – the issue of research, its methods and especially the methods which might be traditionally perceived as “unconventional”. Whether it is challenging the limits of research by employing methods from other branches of science (neuroscience, optics, and others) or looking for the limits of presentation of one's research by narrative or visual techniques, we are interested in topics dealing with the contemporary trends in researching theatre, radio, television and visual arts.

Call for proposals and more information can be found on the conference website:
