Theatre Research in Canada (TRIC)

Included in your CATR Membership Dues is a one-year subscription to our association journal Theatre Research in Canada.

Theatre Research in Canada (TRIC) is moving to a new publication model. In order to save trees, and so that we can shift our resources toward research and editorial work, we are limiting our print run to those among our readers who specifically request a hard copy of the journal. The digital version will remain available to all subscribers. Please indicate below how you would like your subscription delivered.

Société québécoise d’études théâtrales (SQET)

The Quebec Society for Theatre Studies (SQET) is a dynamic professional academic association that actively promotes a variety of forums for studying theatre and performance arts. All researchers, students, and retirees interested in drama and theatrical studies are invited to take part in a variety of focus research areas: Quebec theatre history and contemporary Quebec theatre, theatrical theory and criticism, theatre and education, and performance as research. These focus groups put on a variety of roundtables discussions at least twice a year. In addition, SQET stays in touch with its members through a bi-annual web newsletter providing current information on the association’s scholarly journal Percées (formerly L’annuaire théâtral) as well as the annual SQET conference. The SQET conference accepts academic presentations via videoconferencing to allow international and foreign members to present contemporary research. SQET is an association developed to serve its membership by providing opportunities for their individual strengths to generate dynamic theatre research presentations and experiences.

Far from being restricted to only Quebec universities, SQET is open to the world of theatre research, creation, and experiences of its diverse membership.

Starting in 2014, SQET and CATR/ACRT offer a 30% discount on the total cost for joint membership in both professional associations.

Why should you become a member?

SQET helps promote a community of theatre and performance scholars who share common areas of active research. Since 1976, professional theatre practitioners, educators and academics have chosen SQET as a space for sharing their ideas, analysis, and findings amongst their peers. SQET remains the best place to stay informed about recent and emerging research on theatre within Quebec and French-speaking Canada. The year-round discussions of our four research groups provide exciting opportunities to meet and exchange ideas, which culminate at our spring conference. In addition, throughout our diverse careers, many practitioners choose to attend the SQET conference to sustain and renew their creative process. Finally, by having access to the journal Percées, members have a chance to read successful published research initially presented by their colleagues at the annual conference.

About the Indigenous Host Community Initiative

As a way of making manifest our spirit and intent to initiate long-term, sustainable and reciprocal relationships with the Indigenous communities upon whose lands we are privileged to gather to share our work, CATR/ACRT has committed to a collective, annual offering from the Association. In 2024, donations collected through the Indigenous Host Community Initiative will go to support an Indigenous organization in and around the area of Montreal. 

About the CATR Travel Subsidy & Denis Salter Grants

CATR membership is growing and spread across the country and across career stages. These donations help our graduate students and precarious scholar colleagues attend the in-person Act of our annual conference to present their research and make connections in the theatre research community. Donations are pooled and distributed through an application process in the months leading up to the conference. Donations collected through this stream also support the Denis Salter grants, which annually supports research that broaden’s the Association’s programming beyond the conference.
