CENTRE FOR SEVENTEENTH-CENTURY FRENCH THEATRE

EUROPEAN STUDIES RESEARCH INSTITUTE

INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE

FRENCH CLASSICAL THEATRE TODAY: TEACHING, RESEARCH, PERFORMANCE

12-13 January 2000

INFORMATION AND CALL FOR PAPERS

In collaboration with the European Studies Research Institute of the
University of Salford, the Centre for Seventeenth-Century French Theatre,
recently founded by leading scholars in the field from Universities in the
North-West of England, is planning a conference on the above theme to be
held 12-13 January 2000 at the European Studies Research Institute.

The millennium invites reassessment, renewal, fresh perspectives; the
conference accordingly will seek to stimulate multi-disciplinary and
multi-cultural openness, covering teaching methodologies of grand siecle
theatre and drama in the information age, the latest research approaches in
a variety of fields and their potential impact on the study of French
seventeenth-century theatre, and new perspectives on performance of the
French classical canon. In the world beyond the year 2000, what could be the
place of French classical theatre? The conference will be of interest to all
who are involved in the study, the dissemination, the practice, or indeed
the appreciation, of the dramatic and theatrical creations of the French
seventeenth century.

The conference will take the form of three keynote addresses complemented by
a series of shorter papers (c. 20 minutes) in English or French. Publication
of a collection of selected essays from the conference is envisaged.

Keynote speakers will be Georges Forestier (Universite de Paris
IV-Sorbonne), Alain Viala (Wadham College, Oxford) and Barry Russell (Oxford
Brookes University).

Colleagues wishing to propose a paper should send a 300-word abstract for
consideration by 30 April 1999 to:
