THEATRE FACULTY, JAN?ČEK ACADEMY OF MUSIC AND PERFORMING ARTS IN BRNO has the honour to invite you to the 5th International Conference of Doctoral Studies of Theatre Schools held from 2nd to 3rd December 2011 in Brno (Czech Republic).

The aim of the conference is to continue mapping the doctoral research undertaken at practically specialised theatre schools and academies. The conference is a platform for contrasting different concepts of post-graduate study and doctoral research in the field of theatre practice.

For the first time the conference took place in Brno in December 2003, when 13 participants presented their papers to international auditorium of students and teachers coming from Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, England, Finland and Sweden. The second and third conference was held in December 2005 and 2007, the last one in December 2009. Our intention is to keep the event biannually.

We expect one student and one teacher (ideally the student's tutor) from every school to take part in the conference. The costs related with accommodation will be covered by Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts in Brno. This is valid for every active participant. Other participants should pay all costs related with their stay in Brno. Every participant will cover all his/her costs related with the travel.

Deadline for applications and paper proposals is 31st August 2011, concrete works should be sent in electronic form by 15th October 2011 – we will circulate the papers among participants by email in advance (see also Conditions for Accepting Manuscripts), so everyone could be acquainted with presented topics. The papers and applications must be sent to e-mail address:

Every participant will have a 30-minutes presentation, which will be followed by 20 minutes long open discussion. Please note that all participants should send their papers to the organisers in advance. This paper can be more extensive, it can include more detailed descriptions of the research and present different extensive information (statistics or other data), while the presentation can concentrate on more general aspects - especially methodology of the research.

Because we see doctoral studies and research in the field of theatre practice as new and growing subject, we ask all participants to include in their presentations special chapter/paragraph dedicated to the description of methodology and development of their research.

The organisers will publish the conference proceedings. The official language of the symposium will be English. We will provide simultaneous interpretation into Czech/English.
