and covers attendance, conference pack, coffee breaks, and lunch on

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
