European Shakespeare Research Association

University of Gdańsk and The Gdańsk Shakespeare Theatre, Poland

We would like to invite papers and talks on the uses of Shakespeare in theatrical cultures across Europe and beyond, with a focus on textual/performative practices, on the educational dimension of Shakespeare in theatre, on the interface between text, film and stage productions, on his impact on popular culture, on Shakespearean traces in European collective and individual memory, and on his broader cultural legacy. We particularly welcome contributions to a debate about deploying Shakespeare in the local and more globally-oriented theatrical cultures, and in cross-cultural exchanges and negotiations.

Remembering the Reformation

Event Date: 
07 Sep 2017 to 09 Sep 2017

The Reformation is deeply embedded in scholarly and popular consciousness as a critical watershed and turning point in Western history. The assumption that it constituted a decisive juncture has laid the foundation of enduring models of periodization. Yet, even as the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s 95 Theses approaches, the manner in which the Reformation came to be remembered as a chronological landmark has never been the subject of detailed scrutiny.
