Andrew H. Davis: 2010-11 Faculty Development Grant Report


Excerpt:

My 2010 Faculty Development Grant allowed me to attend the American Society for Theatre Research (ASTR) Conference held in Seattle on November 18-21, 2010. As an adjunct instructor, I do not receive travel money to attend conferences. This was the first time that I have been able to attend the ASTR Conference since 2004, when it was held in Las Vegas and I drove to it. I was eager to attend this year’s conference because my book, America’s Longest Run: A History of the Walnut Street Theatre, was published earlier in the year by Penn State Press, and this was an opportunity to engage with the audience most likely to be interested in the book – theatre historians.
