Adaptations, Versions and Perversions:
French Theatre and English Playwrights (19th-21st Century)
Facultad de Filología, Traducción y Comunicación
Universidad de Valencia
(1-2 December 2011)
The conference aims to explore the presence of French plays and players in England, and their influence upon native dramatists, critics and actors. By means of scrutinising English adaptations of French plays and their critics' and audiences' reception, it intends to illustrate the economic, aesthetic and political tensions emerging and crystallising between England and France since the nineteenth century.
