Costume Poster Slots Dwindling

Great ideas have been coming in for the Costume Commission's Poster Session at the Louisville 2006 Conference & Stage Expo. However, a few slots are still available.

This is a great opportunity to be involved. For some, doing a poster session may enable them to get funding to attend the conference. As many as 20 presenters will stand beside their posters, each illustrating an innovative or imaginative design or construction technique, a solution to a problem, a classroom or management technique, the results of research, or other ideas, discoveries, or developments in the field of costuming.

In order to take part, participants must send Debra Krajec an abstract of the information to exhibit on the poster. This should be a brief, concise summary of the information to be presented in the poster - typewritten, and no more than 200 words. Each submission will be juried. The deadline is January 31. Send the abstract or any questions to Debra Krajec, Department of Performing Arts, Marquette University, PO Box 1881, Milwaukee WI 53201-1881; phone 414-288-1504; fax 414-288-7048; e-mail

Poster Session Deadline Nears

January 15 is the deadline to submit entries for the sixth annual Education Poster Session sponsored by the Education Commission.

The session helps disseminate information about new, exciting, or re-thought innovations in teaching methodology and pedagogy. The poster can cover any area of interest to the theatre educator including new techniques, new solutions to old problems, old solutions to new problems, and results from research. Posters will be juried by a committee. These poster sessions are recognized by many educational institutions as equivalent to paper presentations and qualify as scholarly work.

Typed abstracts should be no longer than 200 words and should provide a brief but concise summary of the information in the poster. Preferably, abstracts should be submitted electronically (e-mail), but can also be sent by surface mail to David R. Krajec, Cardinal Stritch University, 6801 N. Yates Rd., Box 101, Milwaukee, WI 53217; phone 414-410-4170; fax 414-410-4111; e-mail

The jury will review all abstracts and may contact authors for clarification or modification. The committee reserves the right to refuse a paper due to space limitations.
