“Reconsidering Genre in Music Theatre” at CATR (Canadian Association of Theatre Research)

May 29-June 1, 2018, Kingston
CFP deadline: December 15, 2017
Kingston, ON, CANADA

Prescriptive approaches to composition, collaboration, performance, and analysis have long informed traditions in musical theatre and opera, both historical and contemporary. For example, scholars and practitioners of music theatre have always been — and indeed, continue to be — preoccupied with devising formulas for success (see, for example, Block 1993; McMillin 2012; Rosenberg & Harburg, 1993; and Viertel 2016). Surprisingly, these strictures of genre remain under-examined. In the spirit of the conference’s focus on “excavations” and “exchanges,” we are interested in exploring works, productions, analytical and/or critical approaches, individuals, and techniques that blur and challenge generic and indeed disciplinary boundaries in music theatre.

Panelists will deliver 15-minute papers. There will be time designated at the end of the session for discussion that reaches across paper topics. Please submit 250-word abstracts to Colleen Renihan (colleen.renihan -at- by December 15, 2017.
