NUIG Co-sponsored by the American Society for Theatre Research are hosting a two day conference from the 22nd to the 24 July 2015. The full programme details along with an appeal for papers can be found here
The ‘Performing the Archive’ conference will gather together scholars, 

artists and archivists to confront exciting developments in 

archival research in the field of theatre and performance 

studies. With the advancement of digitisation technologies 

and the continuing expansion of innovative methodological 

and theoretical approaches, “Performing the Archive” tests 

the idea that the archive today ‘performs’ differently.

Theatre, Thomas Kilroy and the Abbey Theatre Digital 

Archive, the largest theatre archive digitization project 

ever attempted.
