Modern Cultural Appropriations of Medieval and Renaissance Drama and Other Performance Arts

How have medieval performance arts been used in modern times across Europe to comment on the modern cultures to which they are appropriated? The project will engage with seeking and mapping the ephemeral records of significant modern productions, extending the work of the WUN funded project "2MP" http://www.wun.ac.uk/research/2mp. and will investigate case studies of modern revivals, reconstructions, and appropriations, to explore how the impulse to revive the performance arts of the Middle Ages has been deployed in the recuperation and construction of cultural memory.
