SYMPOSIUM: DRAMA AND RELIGION 1555-1575: THE CHESTER CYCLE IN CONTEXT

May 21-24, 2010 (Register by May 7)

The Chester 2010 Symposium explores the Chester Cycle in its original context, and in the context of the concurrent Chester 2010 research-based Performance. We welcome registrants from the general public as well as registrants affiliated with academic institutions.

The program, in brief, includes a keynote address by Professor Paul Whitfield White (Purdue) and introductory addresses by Professors JoAnna Dutka (Toronto) and Alexandra Johnston (Toronto). Panel presentations include sessions on the Audience, the City, Faith and Doubt, and Text and Dramaturgy, and a special presentation by the Mapping Medieval Chester project, sponsored by the Centre for Reformation and Renaissance Studies. The concluding round-table discussion will consider the Chester 2010 Performance.
