ALTERNATIVE VICTORIANS AND THEIR PREDECESSORS:
NEW DIRECTIONS IN NINETEENTH-CENTURY THEATRE AND PERFORMANCE RESEARCH
One Day Symposium
University of Warwick
Saturday 14 May 2016
School of Theatre, Performance and Cultural Policy Studies
The aim of this symposium is to investigate current developments in theatre and performance research and scholarship during the long nineteenth century and to consider ways forward. The curators invite the submission of abstracts on any topic connected to nineteenth-century theatre and performance in any part of the world. They are particularly interested in papers focussing on alternative approaches to and/or alternative examples of theatre and performance in the period and also in papers relating to what has been called the ‘new theatre history,’ to innovative research methods and to reconfigurations of theatre history on both a national and global scale.
The symposium is curated by the editors of Nineteenth Century Theatre and Film: Professor Jim Davis, Dr Janice Norwood, Dr Pat Smyth and Professor Sharon Weltman. Please submit abstracts for consideration to firstname.lastname@example.org by 15 March, 2016.
