The IRISH SEMINAR 2012: Contemporary Irish Theatre

June 11 – June 29, 2012

The 2012 University of Notre Dame IRISH SEMINAR convenes a sterling cast of international experts, scholars and practitioners to explore contemporary Irish dramatic and theatrical landscapes and discern current patterns of dramaturgy in culturally and theatrically significant plays written in and about Ireland since 1980. This three-week series of presentations, seminars and workshops offers participants an opportunity to partake in seminars, lectures and workshops at the world famous Abbey Theatre with world renowned academics, scholars, directors, actors, critics and reviewers. Among the topics to be discussed are: patterns of history and memory, use of meta-theatre, the enabling and disabling uses of myth, and the role of narrative and monologue in contemporary Irish theatre.
