We are delighted to announce that registration is now live for the conference "Theatre on the Move in Times of Conflict, 1750-1850" at Magdalen College, University of Oxford (18th-19th September) at: www.oxforduniversitystores.co.uk/conferences-and-events/music-faculty/faculty-of-music-events/theatre-on-the-move-in-times-of-conflict-17501850.

Registration costs £20, or £10 for postgraduate and unwaged participants, and covers attendance, conference pack, coffee breaks, and lunch on Thursday.

This two-day conference will study the impact of war and other types of conflict on the production, reception, and circulation of theatre from 1750 until ca. 1850. The central questions of this conference are 1) how does conflict enable (or force) encounters and exchanges between theatrical cultures and 2) how do such encounters and exchanges affect theatrical milieus and their development? Papers will address encounters shaped by the circulation of materials (texts, music, instruments, stage technology, criticism, etc.); people (migrant artists, armies and their bands, prisoners of war, etc.); ideas and knowledge; and the impact of these circulations on established theatrical milieus.

There are two keynote talks in the programme:
Professor Julia Prest (University of St. Andrews), "Theatre, Revolution and Revolt or the Breakdown of Communication between France and Saint-Domingue"
Professor Benjamin Walton (University of Cambridge), "Opera and Conflict"

This conference is kindly supported by the John Fell Fund, Magdalen College, Oxford University Faculty of Music, the Association for Modern and Contemporary France, Romanticism and Eighteenth-Century Studies Oxford, and Music & Letters.
