CDE Conference 2004, Bamberg, Germany: "Staging Displacement, Exile, and Diaspora"

The 13th Annual Conference of the CDE will be organized by the Chair of English Literature at the University of Bamberg and held as a residential seminar at Vierzehnheiligen. Drama and theatre are complex forms of shaping the practices and languages of collective memory and identity. This international conference enquires when and where the staging of displacement, exile and diaspora has helped to produce new identities and where it can (at best) be part of a post-traumatic process of healing. Looking at displacement from both a historical and a contemporary perspective, the individual papers will address forms, issues and the social and political context in which drama and theatre of displacement, exile and diaspora are written and performed.
