About this book

Asking whether a genuinely shared European memory is possible while addressing the dangers of a single, homogenized European memory, Gluhovic examines the contradictions, specificities, continuities and discontinuities in the European shared and unshared pasts as represented in the works of Pinter, Tadeusz Kantor, Heiner Muller and Artur Zmijewski.

About the authors

Milija Gluhovic is Associate Professor of Theatre and Performance and Director of an Erasmus Mundus MA in International Performance Research at the University of Warwick, UK. His research interests include contemporary European theatre and performance, memory studies, and discourses of European identity, migrations and human rights. He is the co-editor (with Karen Fricker) of Performing the 'New' Europe: Identities, Feelings, and Politics in the Eurovision Song Contest (Palgrave Macmillan, 2013).

Reviews

'This extensive study is exemplary in its scholarly and contextual rigour... The book, suitably pitched at the advanced postgraduate level, will appeal to scholars working in memory studuies and the stage, whils its consideration of lived-through, embodied, and represented trauma in the context of sociopolitical crises and fluid identities is incisive and urgent, making this an important critical source in the broader field.' - Vicky Angelaki, NTQ
