Subject: FW: Post Colonial Literatures Group.

The Open University Post Colonial Literatures Group announces a seminar on
Friday 31st, January.

Speaker: Professor Jeanne Colleran, Head of English Dept., John Carroll
University, Cleveland, Ohio.

"Theatre and Technological Colonization"

This talk addresses the implications for theatre of working in a public
space already colonized by the spectacular images of information technology.

Taking the war in the Persian Gulf as the historical starting point for the
phenomena of "total television" that dominated media practices in the West,
the discussion will then move to what strategic aesthetic practices are
available to a political theatre forced to reside and operate within a visual
culture where the accessibility, immediacy, and ubiquity of media images allow
little room for alternate practices.

Prof. Colleran is well known for her writings on Modern Drama, and addressed
our recent conference on SA Theatre in London.

Venue: 30 Russell Square, London ... meet in the foyer for room number etc.

Time: I.00pm

that we arrive here improvised
