The goal of the Philadelphia Theatre Research Symposium is to provide a forum for theatre scholars and practitioners to share their research and enter into a dialogue about current trends in theatrical practice and scholarship. For more information, please contact Dr. David Cregan, O.S.A.
Join us on April 29, 2015 for the ninth annual Philadelphia Theatre Research Symposium as we welcome award-winning playwright Sarah Ruhl as our keynote speaker. This year’s conference will highlight the work of new scholars exploring the ways in which playwrights reveal the otherwise hidden histories that are often not included in dominant historical chronicles.
The Philadelphia Theatre Research Symposium is free and open to the public. The conference will take place from 12:00 pm to 6:00 pm on Wednesday, April 29, 2015 in Bartley Hall: Room 1011 followed by an evening of performances at 8:00 pm in Vasey Theatre.
