The Women and Theatre Program and the Black Theatre Network are
sponsoring "Breaking Barriers: Celebrating Women Making Theatre," a joint
conference in Chicago this summer at the Bismark Hotel. BTN events begin
July 23rd and run through July 27th and WTP events begin July 24th and run

A day of joint scheduling Monday July 25th includes keynote
presentations by Glenda Dickerson of Spelman College and Clinton Turner
Davis from the Non-Traditional Casting Project. The conference will also
feature performances and panels ranging in themes from the experiences of
women artistic directors to issues of subjectivity and the self as a site
of institutional structure. In addition, WTP will be undertaking the
