AATE conference 2011
Chicago 27-31 July 2011

"I adore Chicago. It is the pulse of America."  - Sarah Bernhardt

The American Alliance for Theatre and Education conference was held July 26-31st at the Renaissance Downtown Chicago Hotel.  This 5-day event resonated with provocative performances, readings and technique-driven workshops.  The conference drew 500 theatre educators, practitioners and performers from across North America and Mexico.  To top it off, the fabulous weather turned Lake Michigan into a Midwestern version of the Riviera.  Who knew one could enjoy a conference and a trip to the beach in a city filled with pinnacles of steel and glass? 

The Applied Theatre book signing was a complete success.  Juliana Saxton chatted with attendees, shared hard won advice and signed copies of her award winning book.  At one point the signing was so popular it was difficult to spot the author in the mix!  Other titles in demand included Modes of Spectating, Serious Play, and Theatre in Prison.

Thank you to the presenters, authors and journal contributors who came by to speak with Jessica and Amy.  Many exciting book proposals were discussed and we look forward to reading these.  Please check out the Publish with Us section on our website or email Jess or Amy directly to learn more about publishing with Intellect. Congratulations to AATE organizers for a great conference—and see you next year!
