Nationalism and a National Theatre: 100 Years of Irish Literary Theatre

To support a scholarly conference on the past hundred years of Irish theater and its contributions to concepts of Irish national identity and nationhood.

"Nationalism and a National Theatre" is a scholarly conference to be held at the Actors Theatre of Louisville and on the Indiana University Southeast Campus in November, 1998. It will bring together some thirty scholars to discuss the past century of Irish theatre and its contributions to concepts of nationhood and national identity. It will be held in conjunction with a joint venture of the Actors Theatre and the Abbey Theatre of Dublin in the production of a season of Irish drama and other related cultural events. Bringing together the work of both younger scholars and internationally-known scholar-critics, the papers delivered at the conference will then be collected in an anthology and published by an appropriate university press.
