  February 15-17, 2006
  Arizona State University—Tempe Arizona
     
  "Angry Young (Wo)Men": Theatrical Violence as Ethical Debate

In late 1995, two significant events changed the theatrical landscape:
John Osborne (Look Back in
Anger) died, and Sarah Kane's play Blasted premiered at the Royal Court
Theatre in London. The timing
was somewhat serendipitous—as one of the original "Angry Young Men"
left this world, one of the "New
Brutalists" made her mark on it.

'THE WRITER'S REPUTATION: GENDER, TIME, GEOGRAPHY'

The Durrell School of Corfu will host an international seminar on 'The
Writer's Reputation: Gender, Time, Geography' at its Library and Study

The reputation of a writer is affected by many factors. For example, it is
common for a writer's reputation to suffer a decline in public interest and
appreciation after his/her death. Such a reputation may be enhanced in later
years by the renewal of critical interest.
