National Seminar on "Modernity and Indian Theatre", September 27 & 28, 2013

Monday, March 25, 2013 - 6:07am
Department of English, Gauhati University

'Modern' Indian theatre is fashioned by western as well as indigenous theatrical traditions. This theatre as we know it is also urban, having evolved from its early avatars in 19th century Bombay and Kolkata, to the multifaceted, national and postcolonial construct that it is today. Current ideas of the 'modern' and 'modernity' become more complex and throw up remarkably challenging questions when looked at through the prism of Indian theatre and theatre criticism. It is difficult to define 'modern' Indian theatre as a discipline with specific inbuilt notions of modernity that renders it significantly different from its earlier phases.

The twinned concepts of idle and stasis have recently been brought to the forefront of political conversations in Canada because of the Idle No More grassroots movement, which is one of the many manifestations of a protest culture encircling the globe. No longer silent in the face of the continuing effects of colonialism and its derivative hierarchical structures, indigenous populations and other citizens are registering their discontent, while fostering networks of solidarity.

Secular Shakespears - Shakespeare 450 (April 21 - 27 2014 Paris, France)

Société française Shakespeare

The last decade has seen a return to religion in early modern studies. A previous generation of scholarship had sublimated questions of theology and religious identification in favor of the cultural studies "holy trinity" of race, class, and gender. However New Historicist criticism began to embrace and understand Renaissance texts through the lens of Reformation theological disputation and the religious environment in which individual texts were created. Shakespeare, the most towering figure of English Renaissance writing is no exception. As a case in point Stephen Greenblatt's popular biography of the author Will in the World spends ample time investigating the evidence for possible recusant sensibilities in that most English writer.
