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 fifteenth triennial colloquium of the Société Internationale pour l’étude du Théâtre Médiéval, jointly sponsored by the North East research team of Records of Early English Drama, will be held in Durham, England on 7-12 July, 2016.
