“The Theatre & Performance Research Association (TaPRA) exists in order to facilitate research through and into theatre and performance. It is based on collegiality with a formal structure that intends to advance informal, productive and dynamic research networks.

Although membership is largely British and Irish, TaPRA welcomes international members and seeks to engage with research across a wide range of cultures, disciplines and geographies.

TaPRA does not express a political affilitation and is not a lobbying body. It aims to foster research that:

  • enables links between practitioners and scholars within our disciplines and across cognate fields;
  • liaises with specialist organisations and groupings;
  • encourages early career research in theatre and performance.”

Working Groups

Each Working Group has its own Call for Papers.  Deadline for all abstracts 29 April 2013.
