Comparative Drama Conference
Stevenson University
Baltimore
March 31 – April 2, 2016

Session Title: Tragedy and the Absurd
Organized by the Edward Albee Society and the Arthur Miller Society
Chair: Lincoln Konkle, College of New Jersey
Since World War II, Theatre of the Absurd has changed our understanding of the appropriate structure, content, and limits of tragic drama. These papers explore these changing conceptions by examining specific plays where tragedy and the absurd confront each other in depicting the human condition:

Natka Bianchini, Loyola University Maryland
    “Birth Astride a Grave: The Unity of Time Where Tragedy Meets the Absurd”
Kate Marino, NYC Department of Education and Stephen Marino, St. Francis College
    “A View from the Bridge: The Absurdity of Tragedy”
David Palmer, Massachusetts Maritime Academy
    “Tragedy, the Self, and Confrontation with the Absurd: Arthur Miller, Marsha Norman, and David Lindsay-Abaire.”

  The Arthur Miller Centennial   
October 16-18, 2015  
Sponsored by the Arthur Miller Society at St. Francis College, Brooklyn, New York was a great success thanks to all those who attended. Congratulations to Stephen Marino and St. Francis College for hosting such a wonderful event. Cambridge University Press has commissioned a volume of essays from among the presentations given at the conference, and expect to see other papers printed in future editions of the Arthur Miller Journal.
