TitelNEASECS Panel: Urban Drama, Urban Theater
BeschreibungNEASECS Annual Conference 2015 "Texts and the City"
Hosted by Trinity College
Hartford, CT, USA, October 8-10, 2015

In the thought and literature of the eighteenth century, the theater often features as a distinctly urban space, one giving rise to contradictory reactions mirroring those provoked by the city itself. Attacked by critics for encouraging licentious behavior or superficial display, the theater also finds defenders willing to vouch for its beneficial influence as a catalyst of social or cultural reform or as a forum for disseminating the ideals of the Enlightenment. Like the city, moreover, the theater can be prized both as a source of local or national prestige and for its cosmopolitan character. This panel will consider ways the eighteenth century discourse on the theater can be read as a seismograph of the broader changes affecting cities in the German-speaking world and across Europe.

Possible authors and topics include:
-J.E. Schlegel, J.F. Löwen, Lessing, Herder, Goethe, Schiller, Moritz, Iffland;
-Representations of the city and urban life in drama and dramatic criticism;
-Conceptions of the urban theatrical public;
-The role of urban transformation in inspiring new genres of drama (e.g. the bourgeois tragedy) and criticism (dramaturgy, theater journalism);
-Case studies of theaters in specific cities (Hamburg, Weimar, Leipzig, Vienna, Berlin, Mannheim, Copenhagen, etc.);
-The project of establishing German Nationaltheater in various cities;
-The urban theater as a privileged site of intercultural transfer;
-Municipal regulation of drama and the theater.
