THIS EVENT HAS TAKEN PLACE
A series of colloquia will be held as part of an AHRC-funded research project on Victorian Pantomime, the first to discuss various topics in nineteenth-century theatre history, particularly pantomime and popular entertainment.
Our topics will be:
2010: The Popular Theatre and the 'Sister Arts'
2011: The Cultural Politics of the Victorian Theatre
2012: Nation and Empire and the Victorian Theatre
Call for Papers
Proposals are now invited for papers on the Victorian theatre and the 'sister arts' of spectacle, painting, music, and dance. Our particular, but not exclusive, focus is on pantomime, but we are interested in exploring a wide range of theatrical practices in the Victorian period.
Convenors: Kate Newey, Jeffrey Richards, Peter Yeandle
Proposals for 30 minute papers should be sent to Peter Yeandle at firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than 30 April 2010. Please include a 250-300 word abstract.
