The London Theatre Seminar is an inter-collegiate seminar hosted by the Institute of English Studies and attracts participants from all theatre departments in London.  The seminar is a public forum for the development of theatre and performance scholarship and its inter-collegiate and collaborative aspects are central to the productively speculative nature of its enquiry.

Schedule for Autumn 2017:

  • 5 October 2017 – Postgraduate Panel with Leah Sidi (Birkbeck): ‘Sarah Kane, Psychiatry and Dramaturgies of Dislocation’, and Nina Marie Gardner (RHUL): ‘Collaborating with Ghosts to Inhabit the Body: Adapting Women’s Literary Modernism to the Stage.’
  • 9 November 2017 – Stephen Greer (University of Glasgow)
  • 7 December 2017 – Caoimhe Mader McGuinness (Kingston University) and Nadine El-Enany (Birkbeck)

Forthcoming in Spring/Summer 2018

Seminars take place in the University of London Senate House.  They begin at 6.30pm and close at 8.30pm, and then often reconvene in a local pub.  All are welcome, and there is no need to book.
