Description

As part of the 50th anniversary of the Medieval Congress, MRDS is organizing a series of sessions that will reflect on changes in the field over the past decades and offer a glimpse of what is to come. This session focuses on approaches to drama and performance that have expanded the theoretical methods and geographical scope of our scholarship. New theories from performance studies and the social sciences, as well as an appreciation of a more diverse field of practices, have enriched the discipline. Presenters will be invited to situate their own work within the larger context of drama/performance scholarship and research as well as to suggest possible areas for future development.
