International Theatre Conference “Values of Ancient Greek Theatre Across Space & Time: Cultural Heritage and Memory”

The National and Kapodistrian University of Athens (NKUA) will be hosting the International Conference named Values of Ancient Greek Theatre Across Space & Time: Cultural Heritage and Memory.

The conference will take place on 6 & 7 November 2021 and will focus on the lasting and, at the same time, ever changing values of ancient Greek theatre which are also research in the context of the three-year long H2020 European programme VAST (Values Across Space and Time) which kickstarted in December 2020.

The conference aims to create space for the presentation of scientific work in the field of Values. More specifically, organisers are interested to explore how these “old” values concerning Democracy, Human Rights, Freedom, Peace, Rational Thinking, Hegemonic Discourse and Equality, amongst others, travel through time and space, how they are recalled or forgotten, how they are engaged with our variously enclosed existence, by what method they are performed, and how they evolve and/or transfigure in the context of post-modern and post-humanist world boundaries. Academics, young researchers, postgraduate students, and artists will present topics that fall under the aforementioned areas of interest and thinking.

Participation is free of charge, however pre-registration is required.
