READING MAPS IN LITERATURE AND THEATRE
18-19 May 2018
University of Gdańsk
In 2018, besides theatre performances, meetings with authors, readings, happenings, and film shows, the Between.Pomiędzy International Festival of Literature and Theatre has – as it always does – a strong academic programme. This includes: The University of Gdańsk Samuel Beckett Seminar; and a conference on Reading Maps in Literature and Theatre. The latter consists, among other events, of:
• a discussion of Christian poetry with poet and scholar Michael Edwards of the Académie Française;
• a seminar on Maps with outstanding scholars from Poland and abroad in conversation (e.g. Paweł Potoroczyn and Przemysław Czapliński);
• a seminar discussion on dramatic literature with Piotr Tomaszuk that is co-organised with the Polish Society for the Study of European Romanticism;
• a theatre laboratory Mapping Beckett led by Dr Nicolas Johnson (Trinity College Dublin) and Dr Jonathan Heron (University of Warwick);
• and theatre workshop with Robson Corrêa de Camargo.
We invite all interested to attend these and participate in discussions.
The programme is available at http://www.between.org.pl/en/main/.
We invite colleagues and doctoral students to present papers in English at the open sessions that are part of the conference on Reading Maps in Literature and Theatre on Friday, 18 March, and Saturday, 19 March, in the afternoon. Papers can touch on any aspect of the presence and functions of maps in poetry, prose, or theatre/drama. Those interested should send 250-word proposals by 15 April to firstname.lastname@example.org. They should be clearly marked “Conference – Reading Maps.” We will send notification of acceptance by 22 April.
