Project title: Representing War on the Canadian Stage

Department: Theatre

Faculty supervisor: Dr. Sasha Kovacs

"In this project I will compare, contrast and evaluate the dramaturgies used to present topics of war on the Canadian Stage. The focus of the engaged dramatic text will be collected in Canada and the Theatre of War Volume 1, Edited by Donna Coates and Sherrill Grace. Alongside these readings, the focus of research will engage with theatre theory that particularly investigates the methods used by the playwrights to represent the past, thereby acknowledging how theatre participates in historiography and cultural memory."
