Event description

Description

International Symposium

Goethe-Institut Glasgow

25 – 26 January 2018


The symposium marks the publication of “Theatre in Europe under German Occupation” (Routledge) and brings together leading international scholars from a variety of disciplines.

I will take a broad look at how theatres reflected, supported, critiqued, pre-emptied conflicts. While the focus will be on the 19th and 20th centuries the symposium also features temporal extensions at both ends. The event is part of the dramaturgy research hub in Theatre Studies at the University of Glasgow and is generously supported by the Goethe-Institut Glasgow, the University of Glasgow, and Routledge publishers.
