Seek Suggestions for OISTAT Info Database

Carl Walling International Activities Committee

A database of books, book chapters, and scholarly articles that may be useful to other theatre professionals, practicing artists, researchers, educators, and theatre students is being compiled by OISTAT's Research Commission. The Commission hopes to compile this information and share the recommendations on the OISTAT webpage.

Consider recommending:

  • A book or article focused on theatrical design, architecture, theory, or practical applications of theatre which significantly shaped a perception of theatre.
  • A book outside of the traditional boundaries of theatre performance.
  • A previously published, peer-reviewed journal article valuable to other professionals in the field.
  • An out-of-print text that can be recommended to students or young professionals.

In about five minutes, texts can be recommended internationally to other artists. Include the title of the text, the author, the reason for the recommendation (50 to 100 words) and the name of the person submitting the recommendation. Click here or here to submit suggestions.

The Commission welcomes all USITT members (including student researchers) to attend future OISTAT Research Commission meetings and events. The next meeting will be part of the E-Scapes conference in São Paulo, Brazil, along with the annual Performance Design and Education Commission meetings. The E-Scapes conference will be August 10 to 15, and additional information can be found here.
