Stage Presence: Marguerite Duras and the Theatre

The Department of French, UCC, is hosting an international conference on the theatre of Marguerite Duras (1914-1996), in celebration of the centenary of her birth.

On 21 and 22 November 2014, University College Cork will welcome a group of international scholars to celebrate the centenary of the birth of French writer Marguerite Duras (1914-1996). While Duras’s extensive output in fiction and cinema has been much examined since her death, there has been little focus on her theatre. Over two days, scholars from France, Ireland, the United Kingdom and the United States will bring into relief Duras’s radical contribution to the development of the languages of the stage.
