  • Irish Theatrical Diaspora: NUI Galway, 17-18 April 2009

    Monday, March 9th, 2009

    “Irish Theatre: the Local and the Global” is the theme of the 2009 Irish Theatrical Diaspora Conference, which will be held on 17-18 April 2009 at NUI, Galway.

    The Irish Theatrical Diaspora develops and co-ordinates research on the production of Irish drama in its local, national and international contexts. The project defines “Irish drama” as all theatrical performances within the island of Ireland, and any theatrical performances outside the country involving Irish-born personnel or having substantial Irish content”.

    This is the sixth annual conference hosted by the ITD. The keynote address, “The Spaces of Irish Theatre”, will be delivered by Christopher Morash of NUI Maynooth.

    The conference is funded by the Irish Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences. Registration is free but places are limited.

    See the timetable and registration information at the Irish Theatrical Diaspora website.
