Transnational Spaces in Modern and Contemporary French-Language Drama
Chair: Aurelie Chatton (Kalamazoo College)
How does modern and contemporary French-language drama stage transnational spaces? With theater, the community is able to represent as well as re-/imagine itself. How does the representation of these “intersections of cultures, languages, and peoples” participate in shaping new conceptions of territory, of identity, and in addressing the challenges of the new world community? How does contemporary French-language theatre engage in a collective reflection about these spaces? (For full CfP, click the link above)
