Last week three members of the Out of the Wings team, namely David Johnston, Jonathan Thacker and Kathleen Jeffs traveled to New York for the Association for Theatre in Higher Education’s 2009 conference. Our seminar was a great success; 23 participants of our wiki-conversation which has been ongoing for the past year were in attendance. There never seems to be enough time to have the conversations, which seem to be over as soon as they begin, but the encounter continued with a post-seminar discussion and we hope it will continue into the future. Our preparatory conversation is available for viewing online. For the main site see the Main Wiki, and see here for our specific 2009 New York Seminar.
Specific thanks go to the Association for Hispanic Classical Theatre, particularly Ben Gunter and Susan Paun de Garcia, without whom the seminar would not have been possible.
