New Directions in Nineteenth-Century Theatre and Performance Research

One Day Symposium
Saturday, May 14, 2016
University of Warwick
Millburn House
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. We invite the submission of abstracts on any topic connected to nineteenth-century theatre and performance in any part of the world. We are particularly interested in papers focussing on alternative approaches to and/or alternative examples of theatre and performance in our 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: Jim Davis, Janice Norwood, Pat Smyth, and Sharon Aronofsky Weltman. 

Please submit symposium abstracts for consideration to by 15 March, 2016.
