The lectures will examine ways in which our understanding of the past is enhanced through performance. What does it mean when our histories take alternative forms such as film, theatre, re-enactment, cabaret and virtual gaming? How does re-staging the past in these ways shape the history that is produced and how audiences experience the past? Visit the Shannon Lectures page for more information.
Five renowned speakers will deliver lectures on this year’s theme, Performing History: Re-Staging the Past.
