The German Society for Contemporary Theatre and Drama in English (Homepage: http://fb14.uni-mainz.de/projects/cde) announces its Eleventh Annual Conference (May 9-12, 2002), which will be organized by the Chair of American Studies at Würzburg University and held at Burg Rothenfels. We celebrate 600 years of Würzburg University and 10 years of CDE.
Call for papers:
We invite papers on all aspects of the conference topic, including:
the global village
u- or dystopian spaces
nature as a counterforce to globaliza-tion
the dialectics of the global and the specific
These, and other, aspects of globalization and regionalization, inform contemporary drama in English both on the thematic and the structural level. Therefore, the conference topic allows for the assessment of contemporary drama as a flexible medium as well as a forum for debate.
If you propose to give a paper (in English, not exceeding 20 minutes), please submit your title and an abstract of about 200 words, accompanied by a biographical sketch.
In addition to the presentations of regular papers, we would like to experiment with two additional forms of interactional discussion: a Forum on Work in Progress (particularly addressed to postgraduates) and a Workshop on Teaching Contemporary Drama in English. If you are interested in contributing to either one of these workshops (statements should not exceed 10 minutes in length), please submit a title, a short abstract of your statement and a biographical sketch. Proposals should be submitted by October 1, 2001.
Please send your proposals to Univ.-Prof. Dr. Jochen Achilles at the address below.
