Saturday 17 September 2022, 10.00am – 4.45pm

Room G37, Ground Floor, Senate House, Malet Street, London WC1E 7HU (Senate House at School of Advanced Study’s IMLR, University of London)

The annual one-day conference of the Society for Pirandello Studies aims to embrace a wide variety of methods and approaches to Pirandello’s œuvre, and to bring together theatre professionals, critics and scholars representing a range of disciplines. In the centenary of Nobel-prize-winning playwright Pirandello’s project for short fiction, Novelle per un anno, this year’s conference sheds light on Pirandello’s metafiction and its relation to more recent practices of (fiction/theatre) storytelling.
