Call for papers

The sixteenth triennial colloquium of the Société Internationale pour l’étude du Théâtre Médiéval will be held in Genova, Italy from July 8-13 2019, the length of the congress depending on the number of papers.

This is a general call for papers to be contributed to the conference.

Following standard SITM guidelines, all accepted papers in their entirety will be published online several months before the Conference in order to give all participants ample time to read and prepare for discussion. Presentation of papers during the conference is limited to main points only, taking no more than 10 minutes each.

There will be four general themes for the conference. The topics of the conference are:

  1. costumes and stage decoration
  2. manuscripts and early prints
  3. sacre rappresentazioni
  4. medieval theater and interaction, circulation and cultural/religious exchanges in the Mediterranean region

Please indicate as soon as possible whether you intend to attend the conference and which theme your paper will address.

The deadline for submitting your paper title is December 31, 2017.

All papers must be submitted by March 31, 2019 in order to be mounted on the website.

All correspondence should be sent to Dr Tiziano Pacchiarotti.

  • Cast size
  • Staging space required
  • Any particular production desiderata eg different performance levels, indoor or outdoor performance
  • Special effects which might need to be accommodated

Each production will be given once at the conference (in exceptional circumstances twice): all productions will be open to conference delegates; some productions will be open also to the general public of Genova.

FUNDING: Proposers of productions are responsible for funding travel to and from the conference for all those involved in their production, and for meeting production costs.
