Gender Research Day

At our university, scholars across various disciplines within English and American Studies approach gender from different, yet partly overlapping angles in both their research and teaching.

Our first Gender Research Day on 12 January 2024 aims to introduce various approaches to gender in cultural and literary studies, as well as linguistics.

A poster session will spotlight student projects on gender, and in a final panel discussion, we will explore possible synergies across our diverse fields.

Theatre in the Digital Age

32nd Annual CDE Conference

2-5 May 2024

Grillhof, Innsbruck

Organisation: Dorothee Birke, Anja Hartl, Christoph Singer, Ulrich Pallua, Ines Gstrein

At unprecedented speed, digital technologies have, during the course of our own life times, transformed everyday routines and entered all spheres, from the political to the most intimate. Our conference asks how the theatre – which has always developed alongside, in conjunction with, or against the odds of technological developments – is affected by and has responded to these profound changes. It aims to take stock of the urgency and creativity with which these transformations have been taken up in contemporary Anglophone playwriting and performance. In addition, these entanglements with the digital also pose questions about the very nature of the theatre and call for reflections on its role in the newly emerging media environment.

● Anatol Stefanowitsch (Freie Universität Berlin, Germany)
