CIJIET - 2nd  International Conference for Young Researchers on Theatre Studies

2nd International Conference for Young Researchers on Theatre Studies (CIJIET) will take place from 25 to 27 October 2017 at the Universidad de Murcia (Spain). Dealine for proposals: 23 June.

The 2nd International Conference of Young Researchers on Theatre Studies (in Spanish Congreso Internacional de Jóvenes Investigadores en Estudios Teatrales, CIJIET) will be held on 25, 26 and 27 October 2017 at the Universidad de Murcia (Spain). After the fruitful first edition of the conference last year, this new edition pursues to establish CIJIET as a referent for new researchers on the field of theatre studies. Apart from the plenary sessions by consolidated researchers and papers by new ones, this new edition includes a call for panels in order to examine specific issues in more depth. In the attempt to bring research and practice together, the programme will also feature activities such as performances or Open Mic sessions. After the first edition, it is now time to start CIJIET’s second act. Welcome to this new performance.

 

The conference welcomes papers and thematic panels on the following topics:

- Dramatic Texts: critical studies on translations, adaptations, dramaturgy, or any aspect related to the textual component of theatre.

- Theatre and Cultural Studies: studies related to anthropology, sociology, pedagogy, historiography and theatre reception, as well as those on queer theatre, theatre and feminism or theatre and post-colonialism, among others.

- Performing Practices and Stage Forms: studies on acting or directing, history of performance, performance as research, theatre architecture, music, and other elements of the mise-en-scène.

- Theatre and performance: studies related to the blur of boundaries between theatre, performance and other disciplines.

- Comparative theatre: comparative studies bringing together different aspects from the topics above (i.e. adaptation of the dramatic text for performance, different productions of the same title, contextual analysis...).
