Every third year in July SITM meets for an international colloquium. Renowned researchers and young scholars discuss papers that were published on the congress webpage beforehand. Thus, there are no lengthy paper presentations, but lively discussions on a highly informed level. The colloquia normally focus on five main topics, covering a wide field of theatre studies, from manuscript to staging, from music to text analysis. Colloquia also include theatre workshops and a medieval theatre festival with performances directed by members of SITM.

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.

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

  • costumes and stage decoration
  • manuscripts and early prints
  • sacre rappresentazioni
  • medieval theater and interaction, circulation and cultural/religious exchanges in the Mediterranean region
