Misdirections and Misconceptions in the Theory and Practice of Greek and Roman Drama (18th Annual Jo
The 18th Annual Joint Postgraduate Symposium on Ancient Drama, on the 25th (at the Ioannou Centre, Oxford) and 26th June 2018 (at Royal Holloway, Egham). The theme this year will be 'Misdirections and Misconceptions in the Theory and Practice of Greek and Roman Drama'.
This annual Symposium focuses on the reception of Greek and Roman tragedy and comedy, exploring the afterlife of these ancient dramatic texts through their re-workings by both writers and practitioners across all genres and periods. This year’s theme invites discussions of old and new interpretations of Greek and Roman drama with a particular focus on their (non)conformity to ancient (and modern) models, as well as the way that they are shaped by theatre conventions. Speakers from a number of countries will give papers on the reception of Greek and Roman drama. This year’s guest respondent will be Dr Helen Eastman (Theatre Director/Writer). The following academics will attend this year: Prof. Fiona Macintosh (Oxford), Prof. Elizabeth Schafer (RHUL), Prof. Oliver Taplin (Oxford). There will be a performance of Tony Harrison’s The Labourers of Heracles on the evening of Monday 25 June in Oxford.
