Theatre 401 Research Colloquium

Our Winter 2012 Theories of Theatre class held a colloquium of conference-style research papers on April 16, 2012 in room D215 on the Chilliwack North Campus.

Students, arranged in panels of 3-4, presented papers on a range of subjects related to theatrical theory, representation and practice. There was an opportunity after each paper for the audience to ask questions of the presenters.

Thanks to all who attended and the students for sharing their research!
