Theatralia: "Ingmar Bergman Recontexted"

TheatraliaJournal of Theatre Studies, ISSN 1803-845X (print), ISSN 2336-4548 (online), is a peer-reviewed scholarly journal issued by the Department of Theatre Studies, Faculty of Arts, Masaryk University Brno, the Czech Republic, some of the issues being published in collaboration with the Department of Theatre, Film and Media Studies, Faculty of Arts, Palacký University, Olomouc.

On the occasion of hundred-year jubilee of Ingmar Bergman, the spring 2019 issue of Theatralia will focus on this outstanding personality.

Ten years after his death, Bergman is still being reflected first of all as a film director, especially outside Sweden. This is clear also with respect to the scholarly literature focused on his work. However, there are monographs and studies being published exploring Bergman phenomenon from other perspectives too. One can name works by Birgitte Steen, Maaret Koskinen and Egil Törnqvist, which study Bergman as an artist who moved freely between film, theatre and literature during his life. This Theatralia issue devoted to Ingmar Bergman would like to continue rethinking Bergman in this direction.

The aim of this issue is thus to approach the extensive work of Ingmar Bergman, the Swedish filmmaker, theatre director and writer from various perspectives related to the other national or medial contexts in which his work appeared and continues to appear.

Abstract deadline is 31 May 2018. Deadline for final submission is 30 September 2018.
