The 7th LATT Conference will be held March 26-29, 2008 at Virginia Tech. While abstracts on any aspect of Latin American Theatre may be submitted the general focus of the conference will be the question of the term itself "Latin American Theatre" and what that rubric has come to mean in cultural, political and geographical terms since the first LATT conference was held in 1982. the objective is to erase artificial regional and national frontiers, incorporate theatre people working in many regions and in different languages, and at the same time channel the dialogue toward some of the larger cultural issues that now engage Latin American and US Latino/a theatre scholars and practitioners, such as translation, adaptation, migration and the effects of globalization on cultural identities.
