Come Help Me With My Entertainment Technology History Timeline at USITT 2019 in Louisville!

As I wrote before, for a sabbatical article I’m working on about the maturation of show technology and its impact on live performance, I’ve been working on a timeline that’s turned out to be kind of interesting. I’m presenting it at USITT 2019 Thursday, March 21, 2:45 PM - 4:00 PM. Please come out and give me some feedback!

In addition, on Friday, March 22, 1:00 PM - 2:45 PM, I’m on a panel talking about ESTA standards and how they can be used in the classroom.
