If you are academically inclined and are interested in theatre audiences, then please do take a look at the website for the up-and-coming conference on the audience through time, organised by myself and fellow PhD researcher Anna Kretschmer at Queen Mary, University of London.
We aim to create for scholars to discuss how have audiences changed through time. Can contemporary theatre spectatorship inform how we understand audiences throughout history? How does historiographic research on audiences relate to present cultures of spectatorship? Using theatre as the core, but not only, focus of discussion, this conference will consider spectatorship across history.
